    I'm looking for blades for my Gravely 272z (72" cut). I looked through all my catalogs, but can't find one that matches. Most of the blades that are in the catalogs have a sharp bend. Mine are basically flat.

  2. Try j Thomas, and cross reff it with a blade like it.

    Same bolt hole size and length.

    Something like $17.50 a blade.

    I order from j thomas, dealer wants something like 45+ for 3 blades, I get them for around 6-7 bucks if I order 9 or more from thomas. Mine are what they call an offset blade. They probably have them.

    Should take a Rotary blade #6171 that should sell for around $7.
    Anyone who carries Rotary brand should be able to get it for you.

    Just be careful about thickness on the aftermarket blades.

    I got some from Landscapers Supply and they were too thin....caused a really ugly situation when they hit something, they snagged and bent rather than deflected, and would cause the blade bolt to shear off.
