Dixie Chopper 66" Blades?

I justg bought a new Dixie Chopper Excaliber 3366 and can't find ANYWHERE online that sells aftermarket blades for it? Anyone know where I can find them. I can find a few places selling OEM blades, but that will get expensive buying them from the dealer all summer.

Sorry, its such a new mower that no one to my knowlege has taken on the aftermarket side for them. Might have to give it a few years and have DC sell about 50,000 more units before you see them in oregon.

This probably won't be of any help (couldn't tell cause it lists part numbers, not deck size), but I thought I'd link it anyways:

Why would you need to buy blades all summer long? Do you wear out blades that fast?

Dixie Chopper blades are extra heavy and the material is tougher than most other mower blades I've seen. Best investment I've made for my business since the mowers has been a Magna Matic sharpener. Fast, sharp, no need to keep buying new blades. Mine paid for itself first season I owned it because I used to use a bench grinder and i could get blades sharp but the proper angle of 30 degrees or whatever was really hard to keep. I'd end up blunting off my blades after a while and giving up and buying new ones. Operator error on my part im sure, but whatever. It's much easier and faster and far more economical for me to own the magna matic.
