...trying to get new blades, and lots of references to both.

I have the mulching plugs, and am thinking of getting the G5 gators (590-685) for my 22/44 Regent.

1716696: Mulching blade, 3 on some 44" decks or Left Hand on some 38" decks
1704100: Standard blade on some 44" decks

There are also 1704856 "Hi Lift" and 1721085 "Eliminator"

Cityfarmer - any chance you have the "lift" specs on these, or, alternatively, if the 1704856 came with a bagger kit? (that would be my guess)

I'm just trying to decide between:

1716696 (as-is, but more $$$ due to not as many alternatives)
1704856 (can be replaced with oregon 91-723 for $12 / blade shipped)
590-685 (oregon G5 gator mulcher, which may or may not be better/worse for regular mulching, but might be downright ideal for fall)

Sorry -- I just pulled the #'s from the Simp belt and blade quick-reference. no specs on that. Google?

No worries - tried googling a bunch, but was hoping the reference you were using was that detailed. Anyway, thanks a ton! Going to gamble on the 1704856 equivalent with the mulching plugs.
