I just recently changed out my OEM deck blades for the gators and i noticed some vibration now when i cut grass, is this normal with the gators? :drunkie:
Nope, there shouldn't be any vibration. My Gators are quite a bit quieter than the high-lift OEM blades I had and no vibration.
I would remove the deck and check to make sure that the blades and/or washers are not mis-positioned. Any little thing that is keeping the blade from seating perfectly on the spindle could cause a vibration. I would remove all the blades, check for dirt or mis-positioning and bolt them back on. If that doesn't do it, you may have a defective blade.
FD611V, I clicked on the link you posted, but did not see the word Stens anywhere?
Am I missing something?
How do the stens blades cut? Are they like the gator blade with the fins on the back?They are Stens brand blades.
If you have a John Deere deck, just clink on John Deere and find the deck size, and scroll down till you find the blade size.
I've ordered two sets (6 blades), and they both came Stens stamped on the blades.
The packing slip shows the blades were dropped shipped from the Stens warehouse in Acworth, Ga.
Does the Motown. Com have a toll free number. Make the call to be sure you will get the Stens blades.
