My new 48 inch exmark wb has 15/16 center holes in the blades does anyone make after market blades like gators for mulching?

Exmark is making gator type blades now, I think they are called Extreme. Look just like gators but I'm not sure they will work for your mower. They work on my 05 Lazer. Mine were only $13 each at the dealer. Not much more than generic.

A splinded bushing goes through a 15/16 hole in the blade.

It is their new blade style, it supposedly doesn't tighten up when something is hit with the blade.

Anyone have pics or info on this new blade type?

Is it a wider blade, as a 15/16" hole in a standard width blade doesn't leave much "meat" left on either side.

Personally if eXmark went through all this change with the blade/spindles, why didn't they just switch over to the TORO designed spindle housing?
