For any of you who own Scotts or John Deere 21" mowers...

Hey I have a 2000 Scotts 21" mower and am trying to find a gator mulching blade for it. I found there is no Gator designed for Scotts mowers. Since my Scotts mower is made by John Deere, does it have the same diameter center hole?

Last summer I bought a "Viper" mulching blade at Home Depot for my Scotts 21" mower. The "Viper" blade seemed to be a knock-off of a Gator blade (for all I know, it IS a Gator blade with a different name, knowing how Home Depot operates). Designed just like a traditional Gator blade, but painted yellow.
