Geez, if you guys are getting them shipped to you from the US, let know and I am sure I can get them to you for the same price, or cheaper. Let me know what you need blades for (if you have the part #, that would be best). If Gator blades are available for a mower then I can get them.

Justin,

I don't think the gator Blades are not available yet for your mowers (If I recall correctly both of your mowers are Husqvarna?). But to make sure, give me the blade # or if nothing else, the mower model and serial # and I will double check and get back with you. On that note, I can also get the original blades and Oregon replacement blades for most mowers.


Thanks,
Eli

The Gator options are:

Option 1: Gator 3 in 1 Hi-Lift, $53.19 (shipping included) for set of 3,

Option 2: Gator 3 in 1 Magnum (extra heavy duty ~ .250" thick instead of .203" thick), $73.53 (shipping included) for set of three,

Option 3: Gator 3 n 1 Fusion (see this Fusion fact sheet), also extra heavy duty, $94.43, shipping included for set of 3,

Option 4: Gator Mulcher G6, This blade is supposed to be the Cadillac of lawn mower blades and has these features:
  1. Superior mulching,
  2. Superior bagging,
  3. Superior side discharge,
  4. X-Tended Cutting Length (TM) - Longer cutting edge,
  5. Thicker and wider (3" wide instead of 2 1/2" and .250" thick instead of .203"),
  6. Fusion - Stays sharp longer,
  7. Same price as option 2!! Only $73.53 with shipping included!

I would recommend option 4. All of these prices are typical prices w/o shipping but I am willing to pay the shipping if you buy the blades from me (see, contrary to popular belief, I am a nice guy!).

Let me know what you decide,
Eli

PS: I will do my best to match anyone else's prices within reason.

Justin, shipping is cheap, I pay around $12.00 for two sets.

Anyhow make sure you promote you are using these, I have found it a tremendous selling tool as the competition, around here, doesn't seem to even know how to sharpen the factory blades.

Do you have an image or link to the Craftsman blades you are referring to? I did a google search on Craftsman Mulching Blades and they do not look anywhere near the same. Probably why Gator makes blades for the Craftsman mowers.

I would have to check but I would be paying for it (and not charging you for it). I may have to take some blades in and weigh them to get an idea on it.

Justin,

If shipping is not more than that, I may be able to do you a bit better on the blades. I was anticipating shipping being a bit more than that. I will have to check if you are serious about buying them from me (I would appreciate if you would! But no pressure! lol).
