Very hard blades. I too have had a great experience way better than expected.
Mine has a little over 100 hrs as I don't like walk behinds and use my ZTRs everywhere I can. I mulched all but 2 weeks this summer and it saved me a ton of time. No way will I carry anything else smaller than 30 inches. If they make a commercial version I'll never need one for no more than I use walk behinds. This one will last several more years easy.
Both exmark and toro have new 30" commercial versions. I took pictures and posted in this thread.
They cost less than half of the residential version so the OP would have already saved money and got many years of service.
