    1-800-power41 Ask for a catalog. They have pretty good prices and a lot of other things that come in handy

    I purchased mine from the dealer.

    When I added up the cost of shipping and handling from the mail order people it was cheaper. It also kept me in the dealerships good graces when it comes time for repairs.

    Evan,

    I am looking in the Spring 2001 Landscapers Supply Catalog (Page 105) I received 2 days ago. They have a Regular Gator Mulching Blade (Part # 231025) to replace the Toro blade # 446250. It is listed as being 3 blades for a 62" Toro Groundmaster. 21 1/2 inches long, 1/2 inch center hole and .203 thick. The price is $12.69 each.

    Please note: The length for the Toro blade #446250 that it replaces is only 21 inches, 1/2 inch center hole, and .190 thickness.

    I cross referenced blade size and found a Magnum for a Grasshopper 61 inch deck, blade size 21 x 1/2 x .250 that may work. Part # 231248 (Page 91) The difference in cutting width may be due to spindle placement on the deck.

    I hope this is helpful.
    Mark

    What advantage is the newer Gator Magnum blades? I've used
    the regular ones for a couple of years, primarily as
    doubles (Exmark 36" w/b hydro). Should I consider replacing my present ones?
