Gator Blades work great!
on September 21, 2010
I live on five acres and mow all of it with a 54" Craftsman rider. As you can imagine, I get gobs of seat time and have a pretty good idea of what running a residential mower is all about. I sharpen my blades myself as required (which is pretty often) and go through about two sets of blades a year.
It was time to replace my worn out factory style blades again and I figured I would give the gator blades a shot...The installation was the same as any other blade and the mower sounds the same but BOY this thing cuts a lot nicer now. Thicker areas that would normally lug the engine (even with new, sharp factory style blades) don't lug as much with the new Gators. Overall, they allow you to cut more grass at a higher speed and reduce your mowing time. The size of the clippings hasn't changed to my naked eye - I do have a side discharge though; maybe they much better in a mulching mower.
Good product - will order again for sure
