    Bought some new Scag OEM High Lift Blades for 48" Scag. The guy told me $74.00 for three Blades I almost hit the floor.
    What is everyone paying for these Blades should I take them back?:blob2:

    My Walker GHS 48" blades are $20.00 each if I buy them by the box of 6 sets. My Hustler 60" blades are $17.00 each.

    The fact that they are Scag OEMs is why they are so expensive...I have the same problem when I have to purchase Toro OEM parts...they're sky high:mad: :mad: :mad:

    Yeah the Walker blades are sky high, but I found that the edge stays sharp twice as long during the day, and because of less sharpening the blade actually will last longer too. The aftermarket blades I had sucked.

    Those Scag blades are marbain. I do pay a little more for them but not that much more! I Pay about $11 per blade, $14 for the mulcher/gators.

    My Exmark dealer quoted me $14.01 each for gator mulchers for my 36 Metro - they are a lot cheaper on landscapersupply.com-I could be wrong but I think they are about $11 each. I think i seen somewhere where they were 7.49 each, but I couldn't get a description (maybe it was j-thomas.com).
