Looked at TX mower parts site. and Can get blades for my ferris IS2000 61" cut for less then $8 per blade. That is the Heavy duty blades. Anyone that have used these blades? Do they hold up good?
Sure beats the $22 for each my local guy charges.

The $8 blades are standard mild steel blades and will not hold an edge long at all. Pay the $22 for real blades.

They do not carry Oregon Blades anymore now they carry blades from Stens.

We still have the Oregon blades/products. They just are not on the site as they do not qualify for the $9.95 shipping.

lol you're right, I don't know where the crap that came from.

The regular Oregon and Stens blades are not heat treated much at all, and do not hold an edge worth a flip. The stock Ferris blades are the Marbain alloy and are much better.

Alot of my homeowner customers like to save the money over the nice blades, even if it means they'll come back to have me sharpen them more often. 95% of my LCO customers know better and buy the OEM blades instead. The El Cheapo blades save you money up front but get you on time (money) spent sharpening and sharpening and sharpening. :waving:

I have ordered blades for my Hustler from them before and the blades hold up just as well as any other blades I have ever bought! I highly recommend them!

My LCOs have used those Oregon blades and hated them because they lost their edge so fast. They came back and bought OEM blades after making that mistake. Your conditions are the same as mine down here. I'm surprised they lasted worth a flip for you.

So you're telling me conventional blades held up better than your stock Fusion blades?

Recently announced shipping increases and new fuel surcharges got you from the 2 major Texas Oregon suppliers, didn't they? No current surcharge from Stens, so push them on the site over the Oregons, right?

If I have to sharpen them more, Its not a big deal. I can sharpen a set of three in less then 5 minutes. And not much more then that to take them off. AS I pull in and use a ATV jack to lift the mower. And keep a sharp set in the trailer in case I need them.
But will know when they get here.

Received the blades today. And will try them out in the am.. Thinking I will be ordering 6 to 10 sets of them.
Thanks TX mower Parts for selling blades at a price that does not kill us.
