    I have to be honest and say that I am not sure. I do not have a lot to do with the OEM side of the business. I know that we do manufacture for some OEMs. We make quality blades that are exact replacement and we specialize in Gator blades.

    the "gator" blades have the fins facing in....do you manufacture a gator type blade that has the fins facing out? Ive heard they exist, but i have yet to locate them.

    We do not make such a blade. I also have never heard of it. What would be the advantage?

    In stead of constantly throwing the leaves into the deck chambers with the inward facing gator fins, the outward facing fins will throw the leaves out of the deck while at the same time shreding them. EricELM mentioned them to me and i have never found where he got them.

    Maclawnco,
    I have those "reverse gators" I got them from Paul Burkheimer, at Burkheimer Equip. in Maryland. He will ship UPS. That is where Eric told me to get them. I can not remember the part number, but Paul will know what you are talking about. I use them on top when I run doubles. His phone number is 410-734-4577. Or try www.burkheimergarden.com.

    Rapters i think are good all around blade, They mulch very well but you will mow a little slower.
    The middle blade i think came from rotery is very good at leaves but thats it.
    i now have MEG-Mo blades that seem to be very good in wet and i can't wait for the leaves to fall.
    Gator magnums
    Stay on the self.
    So you can see i think in Connecticut that you need a good blade or the wright blade for the conditions.

    Those blades all look like some sort of copy of our origional Gator. You are correct in saying that you must have the right blade for the application. The more that you ask of the blade, the more that it will demand in horsepower. I can not see where any of those would direct the grass back toward the ground. And if they did you would not have lift with that blade.
