Check at one of the vendors that advertise on this site, they should all be cheaper than going to a dealer.

Buy them in bulk, boxes of 50 at a time. Generally costs around $0.88/blade. Plenty of sponsors on this site and other sites as well that offer them.

I buy the four pointed star blades, they cost a little more but last a whole lot longer.

I might look into those. I just bought 20 from John Deere so I am set for a couple of months. How much use would you say you get out of them. Hours, feet, weeks, ect. whichever you can answer with most effectively.

I didn't know they offer them for stihl. I know they have them for sidewalk edgers you push (like mclane).

where do you get them?

The best that I could put it is that they last 3 times longer maybe even longer and cut cleaner, more effortless, and quicker. In my opinion it is worth the change. They end up costing less since they last longer. The first time I used one I couldn't believe how I had gone without them for so long. The advantage is more noticeable with saint augustine grass.

I get them at my local Stihl dealer. They are not made by them but are an exact fit.

Are these any good? I figure if I buy 50 it should at least last me a while and at .72 each you know? The star....what is the biggest difference? Cut quality at all? I noticed with the rectangles it leaves some scragglers sometimes. I hear you say they last longer and just concerned about the cut now.

I buy a case of blades at a time from my stihl dealer. itll last me a year and a half to two years, and itll only be 50 bucks for 50 blades. I get the non heat treated ones, whatever that means. they work.

Got the magnum gator blade by Oregon to try out. Will let you all know how they compare to the standard rectangle once it has worn down enough to change. +2 on the star website.
