I bought a mulch blade at sears in the spring. Not sure if its a Gator but it has the high fins on the back. Works great, lifts the grass and I can hear it mulching.

Gator blades are made by Oregon. If you see "Gator" blades with any other brand displayed you can bet that they are counterfeits. Gator is not a brand. Gator is to Oregon like Silverado is to Chevrolet, a model of sorts.

That may well be, however, at this time, Gator is a part of Oregon. Those things are always subject to change.
