Best blades for: Ferris IS2000 ZTR

Anyone with experience on two or more different types of blades for the Ferris IS2000...???

Which type blade will ensure a better cut, and better expel the grass through the chute...??

Best blade to send grass out the chute will be the highest lift blade available. Also likely give the nicest cut due to higher suction, but that second point may not be quite right.

We have been using the G6 blades, they work great. We order them from www.expressmowerparts.com

Of course it always depends if your discharging or what but the G6 blades are awesome. They are a full .250 thinck and 3'' wide and it greatly reduce the size of the discharge

Use the oregon 91-209 blades, they are identical factory replacements and cheap. Unless your cutting dry thin grass dont use a high lift blade, it will bog the mower and throw any wet grass up in the deck and you will have to clean it more, yes they create alot of vacuum but will greatly lower blade speed. One option I have done is use a high lift only on the discharge blade, it helps shoot the grass out but wont bog.

I have yet to pull the plug. When I do it will be either a 60" cut Ferris IS2000 or the Exmark Lazer Z(E). I'm leaning toward the Ferris solely because of the suspension (wife has back issues, and loves to cut grass). The question of blades is for future knowledge. It will be a ICD Deck....

With knowledge, one is better prepared.

Thanks to all........!!!

Wonderful News.....

I just discovered, the dealer I plan to purchase a ZTR from (Congress Outdoor Power Equipment) will be a vendor at the Louisiana Outdoor Expo in July.

That means the possibility of "show prices" on some ZTR units....... So I feel it's in my best interest to wait until July for the Expo, and see what happens (Price wise)........I'm so excited......
