Got some new Gator blades today for my 48" and 61". Was suppose to be like the ones I bought last fall. But the outside edge was flatter than the gator part. So I thought I would just put them in the vise and wack them with a sledge and put some pitch on them. Cant do it wont bend, so I put some heat to them. Man are they tough. Look the same know. Oregon Gator made in the good ol USA.
