Different sound tone to Gator blades

I just switched to them from the factory lift blades on my Lazer, ran them for the first time today. Idk if it's because I was freezing all day and was hearing things, but it seems like they make a totally different sound when spinning as opposed to how normal blades sound. Has anyone else encountered this?

I do have to say that they are seriously amazing with shredded dry leaves & cut perennials into dust! Almost cuts down the volume of how much is hauled out in half!!

When you have systems, you have control.

If youíre born poor, itís not your mistake. But if you die poor, it is your mistake.

Yes, the sail or fins of lawn mower blades create sound, it's mostly a humming sound, different mower blades create different hums.

Those teeth on the back make tons of noise. I'll run my hustler with regular blades for a day and the next day run my Great Dane with gator g6's and the Dane sounds like a frickin airplane taking off. Granted, the Dane has 3 18" blades and the hustler has an 12" and a 24" or something, but still.
