    I've had a 06 Everride Warrior (25 hp kawi)demo for a week. Seems to ride and cut nice. I like alot of features on this machine. It cuts better,mows faster than my old 50" 23 hp Koler Chopper.The finance deal and price was great so decided to purchase it. Anyone tried any other kind of blades for this 54" machine? I've seen some posts of guys using to toro blades on thier 60" decks.

    I bet blades for the 54" might be hard to find.

    What length are they?
    What center hole size are they?
    Are the flat blades or formed blades?

    If the mower cuts good why are you wanting to change the blades?

    They might be 9\16 but measure the hole on your blade the factory ones on mine are the same as a 5\8 and I have been using Bobcat blades for over 2 years on 2 machines one now has 1333 hrs on it and no issues from the blades.You get a little more lift and a lot smaller clippings with the others

    Why change from the factory blades?

    The factory ones have no lift and are alot thinner I use the Bobcat and alos bought some Gators and have been realy happy
