    Does anybody have a phone # or web address for the new gator blades? I talked to two dealers yesterday who had not even heard of them yet. Bobby

    May be a stupid question, but can gator blades be re-sharpened and what is the average life of them?<br>Thanks, <br>Lee

    Lee They seem to last the same as standard blades for me. As for sharpening, if you are refering to the lifting fins, they don't need it.Ever. <p>----------<br>Bobby <br>Ft Lauderdale

    Can these gator blades be used on walk behinds and how successful are they by themselves mowing grass. I realize a lot of people use them to pulverize leaves. Can a wb handle 4 blades per spindle? Anyone done anything neat with walk behinds and different blades(aka different combos) and have they been successful?<p>----------<br>Integrated Landscape Solutions<br>Lexington, KY

    Mattingly, I don't think any mower can handle 4 blades per spindle. 2 blades per spindle is a big load on an engine.<p>----------<br>&lt;a href=&quot;;&gt;Eric@ELM&lt;/a&gt;<br>
