Which Blades?

I have finally put the finishing touches on the "mechanical rebuild" of an Excel Hustler 295. Took it out for a trial run and all is working just fine. On occasion, I'll be mowing some fairly high grass and weeds. Is there a better type of blade to use, rather than the type that came on the machine 25 plus years ago? I'm dealing with a rebuilt two cylinder, 25 HP, gas engine, with a 72 inch mower deck.

Thanks.
Paul

If you can get me the model # off your deck I can give you a idea of whats available, and make some suggestions from there.

I finally got the mower deck model number. It's 922831. I'd like to get blades that are going to do the best job.

Thanks,

Paul

Ok...
Here are all your blade options from Hustler, these are Hustler part #'s.
They are all 24" blades, we have used these for over 30 years and still do today on our 72" QuadCycler front mount deck.

The stock blade would be a medium lift blade (37 degrees), it is part # 754853

Optional high lift blade (42 degrees), part # 779504

We at one time offered a Gator blade, it is part # 779660
(You may have a hard time finding this one, we don't offer it anymore)

And a weird one.... a double edged flat blade (no lift at all) we make these for our range wing decks due to ccw and cw rotation spindles, it is part # 024992.

What's the difference between the medium lift and the high lift, and which one is better for the job I described in my first post?

Thanks again.

Paul

The difference is the angle of the lift part of the blade, the high lifts have more angle to them, thus more air flow.
It depends on how much rough cutting your doing and how the engine is on power, the higher lift blades take more hp to run.
I would run with the stocks personally.
