Mower deck blades

I've always used toro/wheel horse blades for my mower decks.
I have NOT been impressed with their cutting ability.
It there any other brand blade that owners use that's better?
I have 48" deck and tough grass that often gets away from me due to work and rain schedule.
I had a set of double edge blades from Gator??? They were high lift, but for 36" deck. They seemed great for price.
What's everyone else using?

I have the same deck, and I have been using aftermarket blades ever since I wore out the original set. I purchased two sets of a brand called XHT, part number B1TR3109. They are manufactured by Sunbelt Industries. They are a direct replacement for the following part numbers:
XHT-B1TR3109
Stens 350-124
Oregon 91-806
Toro 106637 106078

Try ebay. You should be able to get all three blades for about $30, delivered if you look hard for free shipping. Very durable, hold an edge for a long time.

Another good aftermarket was "Copperhead" blades. Also very good and competitively priced if you can find them. I believe Georgia Equipment sells them.

And even worse, I don't care.

Oregon blades. I mow big open areas and I have no need for bagging or mulching. I picked Oregon blades for my Toro 522xi with 52” deck and my neighbors 52” commercial Toro zero turn mower. Pay very close attention to detail when ordering mower blades. The blades I got for my 522xi have a slight dogleg bend in them, and I needed a straight blade with a large wing at the end. My 522xi blades have a 1/2” center hole and the neighbors Toro uses blades with a 5/8” center hole.

My Horses: Toro 520xi, 522xi,, plus 520Lxi parts tractor. Two Sears (Noma) 4 wheel steer tractors. Dixie Chopper X2002 project. WTB: Bolens Villa rear steer riding mower. See my Facebook pages for Bolens Villa mowers & Toro 5xi & New Holland equivalent garden tractors.
Wanted to buy Toro 5xi series 79355 48 blade, 52 deck.
