    Theres a difference in pitch with the new blades. I havent cut with them yet, but can i mix my new blades from last year. even if though they are different is this going to create any problems...

    What blades are you talking about?
    Are they Hustler OEM blades?
    Is the same part # stamped on both of them?
    What model mower are we talking about?

    Are these Hustler OEM blades / part # blades you are comparing?
    I am not aware of any change in that part # blade.
    I will double check though.

    they both have the same part number.. bought 1 in fall 07. bought 2 spring 08 and they are not the same. Fusion blades i think. its what my dealer gave me.

    I will check.
    But if they both have the Hustler part # stamped in them (not a sticker) they are Hustler OEM blades, that is what I want to make sure of here, that you don't have aftermarket blades.

    I was just informed Friday that the manufacture that produces our blades is using new stamping machinery and this is the reason for the difference in the blade sail.
    You can run it with the old style it will not hurt anything.
