Marbain mower blades

i'm wondering that also. after 110 hours on my gravely walkbehind, i have only sharpened the blades once, and they have hardly any wear on them, amazing. the corners are almost square like when they haven't been used yet. on my 260, the stock blades lastest a LONG time too without much sharpening. I know it was well over 100 hours with those also.

Yep... these blades are the real deal.
I always thought, "yeah right"....
But I was eating crow and blown away with disbelief.

I would have never bought a set, but they came stock on the Lesco Z Two.
I ran them 50 hours without sharpening, and took them off to try a different blade.
They still don't really need sharpening. They are not as sharp as I sharpen blades, but I can't really tell they are any more dull than they were new.

I'll keep buying them.
Beats changing and sharpening blades daily.

Marbain is a trades name and if it is a Fisher barton blade you should only be able to get from OEM. Other mfg. use other names for there blades. Most MFG. don't use the marbain type blades to save a few penny's. This is why the knives for the MEG MO blades have to be made out side the US.

Sorry, but I don't understand what you mean here. Are you referring to saving money, or are your blades made with this marbain also?

You can get them at your Gravely dealer if they actually order you the OEM blades from Gravely. Around here a lot of dealers "don't and say the did" if you know what I mean. They have you pay OEM price for an aftermarket blade.

I believe Stens parts, which is also an Ariens company, puts out some marbain blades also.

Alrighty, I'll try and not get ripped off! Thanks!
