Now I KNOW that you can get aftermarkets at J-Thomas, LandscapeSupply, MowBlades, even NAPA and other places for 1/3 to 1/2 of the cost of OEM's so, that is NOT my question and I do not care about that at all in this question so thanks ahead of time for not hijacking this thread and taking it that way. There has been a lot of "blade talk" around here lately and probably rightfully so with the season starting back up. So my question is this. How many of you LCO's (esp Fulltime ones) use ONLY OEM blades on your mowers? I think personally that I may have decided that while yes they are more expensive they may also be a little better and in many cases fit much better is why I think I am going that route from now on maybe.
