gator g6 blades for hustler 60" x-1

I'm having a hard time finding them online. Seems the 60" hustler listings has a 20 1/2" blade or a 20 61/64" blade. The part number on my current blades doesn't show up. I'd hate to buy one too short or too long.

I think the blade numbers I have are...

Excel brand - 602771 or hustler brand 794685

Anyone got some help? A couple online stores carry both lengths or just one so I'm not sure which I need? I can always grind down the longer one, but it's less than a 1/4 inch on each end.

Your Hustler part number indicates a 20.5" blade with a 5/8" center hole. The Gator G6 396-740 blade fits a whole slew of mowers including your Hustler, my Dixie and my buddy's Exmark.

I like Stonewell because while they may sometimes be a dollar or two more than some other guys, any orders over $100 ships free. And when you're buying blades it doesn't take long to get to $100.

The blades came in today.

I'm use to the standard hi lift blades, but when looking at the gator g6 blades they are curved so the cutting edge appears that it is going to be lower? Anyone help me out here? I've heard great things about these and thought I'd give them a try.

I don't have any experience with Hustler blades, but I always thought they were straight, not curved? My Deere blades are curved. If you go back through thhis thread and look at my pics, you can see them. Is that what yours are like too?

Yep. My hustler blades are flat so the bolt hole and the cutting edge are pretty close. These gator blades has the cutting edge about .5-.75" lower than the bolt hole. I guess I can always put the heigh pin about an inch higher than normal, but after 10 years on a ztr it will be hard to change my ways.

I may just have to return them unless someone has some insight.

I'd almost bet good money that they sent you the wrong ones, whatever the reason was.
