    Can anyone recomend a blade replacement and arrangment. Should I go to a double blade setup, or stick to the stock Hustler blades? This Michigan newbie needs help.

    Unless your having trouble with the blades that on it, why change?

    Weeeelll....I simply thought there might be something better is all. Before I spent $$$ I thought I'd check for others advise. Sorry to waste bandwidth I guess.......

    from time to time i use 21" bobcat blades on my 60" superz, i can get them at a pretty good price from lesco. they are not as wide ans the stock hustlers but the same length and hole size 5/8.

    I have a set of aftermarkets that the dealer gave me when I bought my Super 60". I'll run by the shop later and see if I can determine what they are. They cut well though.

    I read about gators. They are the toothed ones correct? Is that something that would be better?

    Thanks for the help.

    Ok, I still have not figured out for sure, but I think they are Bobcat blades. They have "3402" stamped on them. There is another bigger number, but I think this is the one with some significance. May be a Rotary number?
