Has anybody used the gator blades on a 54C deck. I have a GX335 and want to know how these blades cut. Also, which one is better, the regular gator blade, the 3-in-1 gator blade or the fusion gator blade?
I put a set of Gators on my 54C deck. LOVE them, they chew the grass much finer than the OEM's do, and I've noticed my deck doesn't pack up quite as much if the grass is damp. They will cut thick, wet, tall grass very well, and seem to be holding their edge a bit better than the OEMs' also.
So, where has everybody bought there gator blades from? I was thinking of buying online, because they are way cheaper than a local guy sells them for here. But I am concernced if anybody has had any issues with the gator blades hitting the side of their deck?
The only reason I as, because my dad has a 01 LX series with a 42" deck and he tried to put the gator blades on his deck and I guess one of the blades hit the sides of the deck.
To resurrect an old thread.... Gator blades make a great difference in my lawn. Not very many clippings to sweep, so I sold my lawn sweeper! I noticed a big decrease in the amount of accumulation under the deck too! Try 'em, you'll like 'em!!!
Do you have the "mulch kit", ie the plastic part that goes under the deck and blocks the discharge port? Or did you just swap the original blades with the Gators and still have the side discharge and deck the same? I'm just trying to figure out if you need the mulch kit in order to get a quality job with mulch blades, either JD or Gator or whatever. :dunno:
