    Great! I only have one set. They are basically a cut down equivalent of the OregonĀ® 92-053 and I'd rather not have to burn up cut off discs and the time to mod those.

    Last I checked Gary is only stocking the 91-369 blades.

    596-327 is the OREGON part number.

    Less total lift than G6's I have for my Q32....?

    Works fine and dandy with mulch plate installed. No real need for a Chute blocker now IMO. Time will tell.

    Yes that is a metallic Silver Sharpie. Work great as a guide line. Takes the guess work out of the job. Might even be a good substitute for impression blue...?

    Work great for layout on cutting blades with a cut off tool.

    :drinkup:

    Here is are some mod pics:

    These G5's work great. I believe the older standard lifts will in fact deliver a tighter manicured cut when mulching but the lack of deck build up and the ability the mulch mow on the first pass @ FULL THROTTLE when double cutting is a time saver.

    The second pass is often NOT needed. Lawns with a crazy amount of excessive growth.... 3rd pass is eliminated.

    The clipping generated are chopped up very fine when compared to old standard blades and the now more common 91-369 single notch Exmark blades.

    Now if ONLY OREGONĀ® can crank out G5's for the Q36 deck.

    :waving:

    These G5's ship dull. And for whatever reason these blades flat out have to be kept razor sharp or the cut quality drops quickly. I never run dull blades knowingly unless it is for an aeration plug break up drill but for whatever reason these G5's need a sharp edge to deliver a tight cut.

    As a side note I will have to test the Q32 with the G6's again to see if there is any possible way to use the mulch.plate with.that deck design. In the past it was prone to leaving a trail under the block.off plate. My Q32's have not been used much lately since max mowing height is limited to 3.5" :( Many of my lawns are mowed at 4.0"+ for summer.
