    On my 717 I ran gators with great luck. Would turn anything into dust including pine straw.

    Don't have the part number right this second but will find it. I have went in several different mower shops and had them look in their parts book and order them for me and have them next day. The gravely dealer has been getting my 737 gators and used to get my 717 gators from him when I still had it.

    No, mine had the mulch kit on it. I did not like the blades that came with the mulch kit, the gators did a much better job.

    I just went out to my shop and dug out a old set of gators for the 717. Here is the part # 90 470.
