LOL.
That's ok, at least I remembered what you run. It was a MTD wasn't it? (HUSTLER) I don't want any hate messages! I don't post a signature line, because I don't want people to laugh at the junk I have. LOL

Still, I'm one of those guys that reads all his manuals and the info that comes with equipment, so I followed the tag's instructions to be sure I mounted them correctly.

BTW- At the risk off soundling like a suck up here, I am liking these G6 blades pretty well so far. If I didn't, I'd have darn sure have said that too, and anyone who knows me, knows that to be true. The only thing I think I'd like to see changed is to have the outer tab on the sail be as tall as the tips of the fingers.
We always like to hear the good comments but the ones expressing concerns or dislikes are also very important to us. Kind of the "We can't fix it if we don't know it's broke" line of thought. Lots of imporvements and new concepts start with comments from the people actually using the products.

.......or maybe you don't give them enough.

Not everyone is mechanically inclined, but most who do this type of work are to one degree or another. I realize that many don't bother with checking HOC when trying new blades etc, but many do, 'cause their ability to earn a living depends on them doing good work to keep their clients.

I was wondering why it wasn't as tall also. I thought maybe they were easier to spin being lowered, several people claim their mowers won't turn these blades. Mine spins it easily, but it's a diesel.

Mine does too. I am not sure the philosophy behind the outer finger being lower. Maybe Oregon OEP will answer this one as well.

Dennis,

I am looking for a set of G6's for my Exmark Lazer 60" Ultracut. It currently has #103-6403 High Lifts which are 21-1/2" X 15/16" Hole. I have not had any luck finding the part number or anyone that sells them. They are not listed in your online catalog either. I am hoping you make them

Thank for you help,
Ed

I am waiting on an answer on this one from our design and engineering department. Will let you know what they tell me.
