Quick 44 BOP G5 blade option found.!.! Exmark 44

Any Q44 owner been using this G5 blade....?

Yes these blade do need to be shortened slightly. Q44 call for a blade just under 15.25”.

So who has the G5 at the lowest price. I guess I could support the local Exmark dealer but at what extra cost...?

Not sure about that size, but I did purchase some G5s for my 32s for around $12-$13/each from mowpart earlier this year using their discount and further discounted the price using an online/onsite coupon I spied at the top or near the top of their webpage. Good luck!

Will post my G5 results IFF/when the grass gets growing around here.

Valk,

Thanks. I run the G6 on the Q32. One of my favorite blades on the 32.

I just wish there were as many blade options on the Q36 deck.

Anyone here have to older low lift Q36 blades on hand....? I will buy them if not to worn down bent. The current ones don't mulch as well as the old low lift ones.

Gary quit carrying them last I checked.

Found them at tewarehouse.com in OK.

Mowpart didn't stock them.

Pretty sure the Exmark dealer would want well over $18-21 a blade.

I thought the old lower lift Q36 blades were causing issues in the first place?

In moist spring growth especially bagging yes. Mulch mowing from mid May onward no not really.

Q36 has the weakest selection of blades.

Q32 is the bagging champ of all BOP mowers. Q44 is not well suited for bagging. I only mulch mow or side discharge with it these days.

I'm also interested in buy some lower lift Q44 no notch blades. Last I checked Gary only stocked the 91-369 blades which work pretty well in the Spring.

Again the lower lift Q44 blades have the same lift and bend profile as the 92-053 blade that was standard on the Q32. Yes I could cut down some 92-053 and have the exact same equivalent but it a bit of work.

In case your wondering the low lift Q44 blades work pretty well in late June-August mowing condtions with block off plate installed. Spring time mowing on cool season grass mowing = no joy.

91-369 are over all best on the Q44.
