New Hustler Super z Owner - Blade Replacement?

I have a 2008 60" Hustler Super Z commercial mower and want to buy some replacement blades. Local dealer is a littler higher than I can afford for a set of 3 ($62/set) and I was hoping someone could suggest an online resource they use for their blades. Also does anyone know what blade model # or specs I should use for that mower I bought?

I am also looking at a Work Sharp sharpening system for my knives and they claim it works great on mower blades too. Anyone have any opinion on this:

Thanks!

I'm running low lifts

Oregon after market blades I think they are. Part # 10249 on my 60" Hustlers

I pay $11.00 to 12.00 per blade at my local dealer.

The Work Sharp is great for knives, but would get pricey replacing belts doing mower blades.

The Oregon blades are a good choice for the money.

The most economical dedicated machine is the Bradley. You can get them on eBay. Others use bench grinders, angle grinders. Or belt sanders. Take your time and balance as you go. Don't overheat the edge as you sharpen
