I turned it to around 3700 and it seemed like it was running too high. I have it at 3500 and it seems good to me. I bought it and have been using it for 3 years now a 3300. At 3700 the g6's were a lot louder then at 3500 and below.

Maybe they should be, but they aren't IME. Most are coming in around 3500 off load at high idle that I have seen.

I got my new G6's last week. What an improvement over stock! I realize I beat up the stock ones pretty bad, so anything would've been better at this point.

They had a pretty thick coat of paint on the edges, so I touched them up on the belt sander.

I noticed the difference right away.

I've been getting a pretty heavy build up under my deck lately. I figured it was mostly because of how wet it's been lately. Well throw that theory out the window. Saturday morning the grass was dripping wet. I stopped after about 2 acres to check the deck. I was shocked to see that it was perfectly clean. They were still clean after 6 acres of wet grass. I also didn't see any clumping.

Of course I was on the look out for any rouge stumps, roots, and sticks. I didn't want to mess up my new blades. Well sure enough, I hit one pretty good. I thought for sure I would need to fix up the blade. Once again, I was surprised that the blades all looked like new still.

I'm sold. I'll be buying a few more sets of these.

I took pic's, but I can't figure out how to attach them from my phone.

Anyone know if these will work well with an ICD Deck? I have not had much luck finding anything other than OEM blades that say they are compatible. I have a snapper pro 52" icd deck. Thanks

Because of the design of that deck the Gator® blades will not work.
