You need-396-770

Go here, and scroll down to the JD section, then look for the 48" 7 Iron (II or Pro deck, same-same)

I have some G6s part # 396-740 that I would sell if anyone is interested. No better or worse on my X Factor deck. Have not tried with a mulch kit only side discharge. One new set $60 and one set with one sharpening for $50 shipped. If you pick up $40 new $30 lightly used. I believe these fit some Exmarks, DCs, Hustlers, and a few others. Please check and verify.

Does anyone have any experience with the g6 gator blades on the Kubota Zd221. I want to get them but I only have 21 hp and i'm kinda worried about not having enough power it is diesel so it has more torque but i'm still not sure. Also does anyone know if I can even get these blades on that model? Thanks guys.

G6 for 54" ZG/ZD- 396-712 w/7/8" center hole or 396-811 w/1 1/8" center hole. If for some reason you have a 3/4" center hole, you need 396-748

G6 for 60" ZG/ZD- 396-810 w/1 1/8" center hole

Your 21 HP diesel will run these with no problem.

Last year I had a 60" gas Z that was rated at 25 HP before the re-rating system kicked in, and now the exact same engine is rated at 21.9 HP. It ran the G6's with ease in any type/thickness of grass I ran it through.

I don't believe that Kubota makes the Zd 221 anymore with a 60" deck but i should have specified that. It is a 54". Woow THANKS A LOT!! you saved me a lot of headaches having to look that up. haha. Okay great i'm glad that my mower will be able to run them I'm tired of using the factory blades. So I should just get the G6's and or should I take the G5's into consideration? Again THANKS

I'd just go with the G6's for now. They are nice and heavy duty, and last pretty well. Being thicker, they flex less under load and leave a nice cut. If you find (for some reason that I can't see ever happening with your diesel) that they bog it down, then try the G5's, but I don't even see them listed anywhere on oregon's site yet, not even for more popular mowers.

Okay G6's it is! I really appreciate you knowledge and quick replies it has been a great help1. Just one more question how do I know what the size the center hole needs to be? Should it be in the manual or something? Oh thats a bit surprising I thought the G5's would have been out already.

I don't know if it'd be in your manual or not. It isn't in mine that I can fine. I know what my OEM part numbers are though, so I look them up by that. The easiest way to know is to take one of your current blades off of your mower and measure the center hole. A tape works fine, but if you're not sure, use a dial caliper or something. If you use the tape, just make sure to burn an inch or two before measuring, meaning don't use the hook at the end of the tape itself. There's usually too much play in it, so just use one of the inch marks and measure the widest point of your center hole. Don't mean to sound insulting like you don't know how to use a tape. Just trying to be clear.

Some of the G5's are out already, but I haven't seen any listed on their site anywhere yet, and Dennis (OregonOEP here on LS) who is the factory rep, told me in a PM last spring they'd be out mainly this fall.
