    Anyone have a good source for blades? I currently use the Gator Magnums & the Oregon OEM high lifts on my Snapper Fastback Pro. I love the Gators, the OEM blades I'm less then impressed with, seems like they ding and chip much easier then the Gators.

    Anyway, my dilemma is this, we have very sandy soil around here. I'm constantly sucking tons of sand into my deck and it really wears the blades out fast. I'm thingking about going to a lower foil for less suction but then my stripes my not look as good. I'm paying my local dealer $19 per Gator and $11 per OEM blade. I know I can get them cheaper but wanted to give my local dealer the business, but at this rate I need to find another source. I know of J Thomas but haven't been impressed with them as they don't stock much for the Snapper products. Any ideas? Thanks!

    I've ordered from them before, they have good prices, quick service. I ordered Gators and High Lifts, they were Oregon blades. If you don't see the blades you need, just email them. They'll likely have what you need.

    Fairyway, all of your pics look the same, like they were taken in a dark closet. That Fuji you use is capable of taking much better pics than that so it must be operator error. When are you going learn how to use the software that came with it? Post that pic on a non-lawncare forum and no one would know they were mower blades. Get with the program.
