    I was wondering if anyone has purchase mower blades off of Ebay? We drive two Exmark Lazer Zs. The dealer wants about $50 for a set of blades. I have seen blades for the Exmark 60 inch Lazer on Ebay for $29 to $33 per set. That seems like a good deal to me, but we have not tried it yet? Thanks for your help.

    You find a wide range of pricing on them just at different dealers. One local dealer gets about $17 per blade for our 61" kees. Another gets around $7.50 :eek: I have purchased blades for as little as $5.80 for that mower. My advice is to keep looking locally. Shipping on blades might offset the savings. If all else fails, companies like J. Thomas sell them for about $8 as well. Also if you have a Lesco in your area they may stock them.

    why wouldn'y you just buy some blades from landscapers supply or offline someplace like greenline or alamia?that price is like going back to a car dealer for an oil change.

    Well if your dealer is selling blades for that much... your dealer is crazy, or he was tring to sell you blades made completely out of diamonds. Go to LSS or Mow More or anywhere else but your dealer. We get mulching blades for about 8.50 each
