    I have a 2012 Hustler 60" X-One and was wondering if anyone had a cheap online supplier for blades. How much is a set, and what are your opinions on high lift for this machine? I'm looking to throw the clipping out a little farther than the factory blades are doing. My machine has 9 hours on it. 7 acres of Bermuda and fescue is what I mow every Saturday with mine. The property I mow is on a spraying program, so weeds are few and far between.

    I always buy mine from the dealer. I got some high lift blades and they really help keep the deck clear

    The x-one comes with the high lifts new, so if you bought it new then you already have them. I could not come to terms with the way the vx4 deck discharged clippings. The clippings were spread out well but were under processed leaving a lot of them. I turned to their mulch kit and couldn't be happier. I have the Kaw 850 engine and it has plenty of power to mulch anything. There is nothing like a clean lawn after one pass, but it can slow you up a bit on large properties. The blades on eBay that you can get for $8.50 a blade are worth it in my opinion.
