Other than the Oregon 91-766 blade which is plug and play only if you have center bolt spindle. But that.really needs a longer matching grade bolt since the blade is heavier and thicker. Lift is.about the.same.as.stock. but.the cut is nicer IMO.

There is another blade pending mods but I.don't rememner.the # off hand.

If you have.the .dual bolt.spindle it's more work to modify.

Much easier to cut.hardened blades.than.to enlarge holes with drills.

I used the residential time master this summer, and it was fair at best, left a lot to be desired. Under powered in tough cutting conditions, deck gums up with grass too quickly, doesn't side discharge disperse as well as I'd like, dogs out when trying to climb hills. It got the job done for me, eventually, just sometimes had to baby it more than I prefer, which cut into the time savings the 30 inch was suppose to provide.

I never had any on those problems. What kind of grass are you cutting? Man, I hope mine doesn't **** out on me!

I'm in a small mountain community in Colorado, at 8500 feet. The elevation could be playing a role in the doggishness of the engine, but I think it goes beyond that, as I have an old 21" John Deere that doesn't suffer nearly as much here from the issues I had. I cut a variety of grass, from tall and weedy, to lush. Seldom wet.

Yes, I gone through all the Timemaster Threads, since they started up... They sound like any other machine out there... some good and reliable and some not so much... just a matter of getting lucky, I suppose...

If ever a place could be called perfect, your community would be a front runner for the title. Unemployment rate is 2.1%. Crime is almost virtually non existent. The cost of living is cheap with housing being the exception. 97% of the residents have graduated from high school. The youngsters still believe in marriage. Income is above the state average.

Surely there is some deep, dark secret that the world doesn't know about there?

Yep, Richard, it's pretty dang nice here. You didn't even mention the idilic climate for doing landscaping work. Seldom hits 90 in the summer, and tends to hover around 15 percent humidity. Heavenly to work in. And when it rains it's usually a quick pass through shower that comes late in the afternoon, and the grass dries out again quickly. And even though Colorado overall voted for Obama, my little county is heavy conservative, with the highest percentage of people owning guns of any county in state.

So with all that, can you believe it, I'm leaving. Have to, because on of my family members is having elevation related health issues and has to get to lower ground. Heading for Florida, and will be starting up fresh there with launching a new grounds care business.
