    I am the proud owner of a new FasTrak 18/44 and new to this forum. I don't have a lot of confidence in my dealer as my FasTrak was delivered with several set-up botches that I discovered while installing the blade mulch surround kit (damaged handgrips, crossthreaded seat bolt, wild tire air pressures, and no owner's manual). I got copies of the owner's and engine manuals yesterday (after 2 1/2 weeks) and today's project is set-up by-the-book.

    My questions: what blades (and part #s) do I want for mulching and who sells this stuff on-line so I can avoid the 90 mile roundtrip to a dealer? :help:

    Thanks; sure glad to find you guys!:drinkup:

    First of all I would like to thank you for buying the FasTrak, you will have many years of great reliability.
    The Gator blades will greatly enhance your mulching
    The Hustler part number for the Gator blade is 785428.
    I do not have the price here with me right now, but I will post it Monday am.
    I am not aware of any online source for this blade.
    As to your dealer problems please send me a e-mail with the dealer information.

    Hope this helps

    mowerconsultant: Do you have a Gator Mulcher part number for this blade as well? Their website does not list ExcelHustler compatabilities. Is this a special production blade for Gator or one of their universal fit blade models? Thanks.:waving:

    I do not know the Gator # for the blades we use of theres.
    The blades come with our # on them.
    They make these to fit our application.

    Hope this helps
