    I just bought an older Bobcat Ransomes WB. Model XM3609.

    What size blades should be on this mower?

    thanks

    Thanks, Pugs. I thought that might be a possibility, but haven't seen any Bobcat equipment for some time and most of what I've had in the shop is Z-turn stuff.

    The blades would be : 18" x 5/8 center hole ( 2 Blades)

    thanks everybody
    I thought they needed 18s, I cut my grass and i was getting an uncut strip down the center, so I checked under deck and blades are not coming close together.
    I measured and they are 16s.

    If its not one thing with this investment, its another. Still spraying down the variable speed pulley with wd40 trying to free that up so I don't have to jog while mowing!

    thanks again

    Oh and any recommendations on blades? mulcher blades, standared blades?

    I do not bag and have an open side shoot.

    thanks
