Are your 3-1 blades the regular version or the 3-1 high lifts? Mine are the 3-1 high llifts and I can see no difference ion the way they perform from my G6's.

Maybe I do have the regular? Just by eyeballing them today they did not look like they had as much lift as my G6 blades.

Like I said to darryl, mine are the exact same height at the end lift tab, and at the tips of the fingers when laying next to each other on my benchtop. I don't have a pic, but maybe I can get one tomorrow if time allows. If you read the specs on the Oregon site you can see the lift for any given blade, and the 3-1's HL's are the same or slightly higher than the G6's, which is 1/14" with some 3-1's running 1 3/8".

Would running the g6 blades with my ultra vac put to much strain on the engine (23hp kawasaki engine)?

Dennis any update on this? I ask because I saw some discontinued that may work (part #96-401), no?

The 96-401 would be the blade and it is available.

Dennis, can you tell me who might have a pair of G5s - #596-310 - in stock so I can order them? These are 16.25" with a 5/8" hole.

AES in KC needs to order 10 to make it worth their while...and I'd like to just try 1 or 2 pairs to see if I'll like them.
