    Just wondering what blades you are running on your 7 iron decks. I currently am running John Deere high lifts and getting a great cut. But I am running a spindle driving bagging system half the time and it really takes up alot of power. Never have tried and other blades on the deere except the high lifts. Just wondering how the cut would be with just regular stock blades or any other blades. Thanks.

    We run all Deere OEM High Lifts. We have tried aftermarkets and Gators and they just didn't seem to do as well as the OEM. I think part of it is because the OEM blades are really wide at almost 3" and the aftermarkets are like 2.25"

    Anyone run standard blades? Have 2 sets of high lifts and was going to get another set tomorrow at the dealer and was going to give just stock blades a try.
