PJ, is there any chance of Hustler introducing a new gator type mulching blade that is similar to the fusion blades? I see a night and day difference in the length of time my fusion blades last compared to the plane gator blades. Id like to see the same performance from all the blades. Does anyone know if Oregon makes a fusion type gator blade which can be used on a Mini Z? For some reason Oregon doesnt have replacement blades listed for Hustler equipment. I looked on the site to see if I could find a match using the dimensions of the Hustler blade but its somewhat difficult to determine what blades are the actual fusion blades.
