    Give J Thomas a call, they are very helpful and tell them exactly what you want and why you are questioning your order. Be polite. Since we can't see the blades I don't think anyone wants to make a comment. I use Gators with four small cutting edges on the wings and they do fine for leaves.Talk to your local dealer,tell him what you want and see if he will talk price with you.

    I've been usinh the JT Gators for awhile now and they seem to work OK....I couldn't tell too much difference on my 48tthp.....It's been so long since I've used std blades I might try them again to see if it helps to eliminate windrowing because of reduced lift (the mulching blades that is...)
