I use Gator blades which does a great shop mulching. During mid part of the season I use Hi-lift blades

I love my Exmark Mower. Cuts great never had any issues and beat the crap out of it as right now it is my only mower. Leaves nice straight cut lines. Only downfall I have with it is because I have the mulch kit on it, cutting really thick high grass clogs it up pretty bad especially when I pick up that once a month residential house. Looking at getting another Exmark this next season and running one with a mulch kit on and one without. I would also say when comparing it to SCAG parts are much cheaper for the Exmark. Exmark def gets my highest approval though.

There's a few different types of mower blades that are designed to do different things better than other mower blades but if you're doing just regular manicured lawns with your side discharging mulching or bagging generally just your stock blades will do just fine

Each series has a few different features. For ride-on and wide-area walk mowers, the Gator Mulcher G6 blades are the best blades Oregon makes, and in my opinion the best mower blades on the market. They unfortunately do not currently offer G6 Gator Blades for all mowers, but if they're available for your models, definitely give them a try. The G6 series has a carbide patch under the cutting tips of the blade, which greatly extends the life of the cutting edge, especially in sandy soils.

Agree with that. And I think that G3 are the best lawn mower blades for 54” decks and have heavy-duty quality.

Normally here in Florida I run Hi Lift Blades April through October and Gator G6 mulching blades November through March.

Typically we find most of our blades for our mowers on either Amazon or eBay now a days. Mostly run Gator during the winter time for leaf clean ups and factory recommended during the regular mowing season. ~ Ma

I've never run Gator blades on my mowers, but definitely want to give them a run. I'll check on Amazon. Any specific type of Gator blade?
