    They are the only blades I use. If your going to mulch or side discharge they are the best.

    Gator Blades can be used all season without any problem. The Oregon Gator Blades tend to be a little more heavy duty than a conventional blade, they will hold a cutting edge better and longer. As with any blade the higher the blade tip speed the better the cut, The Gator blades performance is best on a mower with 18,000 and higher blade tip speed.

    Why can't you buy them for a Kubota, what model do you have?

    I have a ZG 222 with a 48" Commercial deck under it. If you find a way to get them you can do something that I have found nobody else that can.

    Try looking up your blades here. Kubota starts on pg 55.

    Thanks for the link. I will get my numbers together and start looking again. As of late Oct they did not offer the blades for my mower. I looked extensively. OEM blades are triple what Gator Blades would probably be and the people I know that rin the Gator Blades on other mowers swear by them as being better than most OEM blades....
