    Will the 48" Trimstar gator blades work with the 48 Hustler Hydro wb? Part # is 796631. If not is there a gator blade that will fit the 48" Hydro? Thank you.

    Are you talking about the original Hustler 48" hydro wb? the one before the Trimstar? if so it will not work, the blades on the old 48" are 17" long and offset.
    The blades on the TrimStar are 16.5" long and flat.

    Hey PJ......
    Love to see that new "econo" SWB54:dancing:

    OK, the oregon number is 99-917 which is also 99-617.
    This is 16 and 15/16" long with a 1/2" hole. Being a gator, the bend is a tad less, giving about a 1/4" "higher" cut than the stock blade. Frankly, I'm sure you won't even notice the change in height.
    Hope this helps,
    Pete
