I went to my local dealer today and they wanted over $200 for 12 blades! 6 for my 52" Z-Master and 6 for my 62" Z-Master. Last time I bought blades I'm pretty sure I paid like $8 something per blade, they were asking $18 per blade. I need some lube to go with that price..... I just cannot see paying that much scratch for lawnmower blades anymore. I know steel prices have gone up, but there have got to be some better deals out there. I'd like to stick with Toro blades, but would be open to other suggestions. Any help from you guys?
