    Are your 3-1 blades the regular version or the 3-1 high lifts? Mine are the 3-1 high llifts and I can see no difference ion the way they perform from my G6's.

    Maybe I do have the regular? Just by eyeballing them today they did not look like they had as much lift as my G6 blades.

    Like I said to darryl, mine are the exact same height at the end lift tab, and at the tips of the fingers when laying next to each other on my benchtop. I don't have a pic, but maybe I can get one tomorrow if time allows. If you read the specs on the Oregon site you can see the lift for any given blade, and the 3-1's HL's are the same or slightly higher than the G6's, which is 1/14" with some 3-1's running 1 3/8".

    has anybody used G6 on a ferris zero turn 61'' old style deck. i have a chance to buy a ferris derby 61'' 27hp kohler with 500 hours for $2200
    but want to know if it helps with the clumping in the morning due or if the decks clump bad in the morning dew

    Do they make the G6 mulching gator blades for the Hustler VX4 deck?

    Would running the g6 blades with my ultra vac put to much strain on the engine (23hp kawasaki engine)?

    Dennis any update on this? I ask because I saw some discontinued that may work (part #96-401), no?

    The 96-401 would be the blade and it is available.

    Dennis, can you tell me who might have a pair of G5s - #596-310 - in stock so I can order them? These are 16.25" with a 5/8" hole.

    AES in KC needs to order 10 to make it worth their while...and I'd like to just try 1 or 2 pairs to see if I'll like them.
