    I have a Toro ProLine, and have both a Gator blade and an Atomic blade.

    You can get the Gator blade from PowerEquipmentWarehouse. I don't know the part number, but they can help you right away.

    I don't use either for grass. The Gator holds too much grass under the deck, and requires much power to run. On the other hand, the Atomic blade requires very little power because it has little lift. Yes, it will cut through grass, but will leave a less-than-desirable cut. Wheel tracking from the previous pass will mean that grass will not get cut well at all. The Atomic blade will work well in a badly overgrown area -- first pass just to know down tall growth. Change the blades and finish with something else.

    I do use the Gator in the Fall for leaves. It works well for that purpose. The Atomic is not even much use for leaves. Since it has so little lift, it will literally run over leaves before pulling them up and mulching.

    I use a high-lift blade for bagging. It is much better than an OEM blade The high-lift will not mulch at all. It drops nothing out from under the deck - 10, 20 feet of travel, depending upon growth, and the engine is tapped out.

    Check Bailey's. They show that you can by gator blades for that model.

    He's right though, there's really no need for them, the stock ones work great!
