That's common when looking up the G6's BTW, so check out the length, the center hole, and the thickness dimensions of yours, then use them to cross reference blades on the site listed for your brand of machine-

I got it! Thanks now I know what to be looking for. Tomorrow when I'm done mowing I will take a blade off and measure the center hole and see what it is so I can purchase those blades as soon as possible!!!!

I know they show this on their site, but in case you missed it, make sure to also measure your blade from tip to tip diagonally- tip of the cutting edge at one end to tip of the sail at the other end. Not all blades for a given deck size are the same length due to where the spindles are mounted on the deck's top from brand to brand (and even within brands that have more than one style of deck of the same length), so make sure you also know that measurement when looking up blades.

Anyone know the part # for 61" Ferris ICD deck?

I want to try the G6, I sure hope they will help cut down on double cutting. We have had a lot of rain here this year and more on the way this weekend and next week.

Also, where is the best place to order them from?

Thanks

Curious if anyone knows the price for a 60" hustler x-1. Looked ten up on jacks small engine and they were $27.27 per blade.

This about right? Anywhere else to check?

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.
There are around 60 new G5 blades scheduled to release sometime in October. I will pass on more information next month.

Cool! It wouldn't hurt to test those out as well!
