    i was given a set (3) of oregon blades that fit an old huskee lawn tractor i have.they are quite a bit heavier and thicker than the blades i have been running, which i get at t.s.c.. my question is, will the extra weight be harder on the spindles? thanks

    If they are balanced no. Oregon has quality blades for good prices.

    Heavier blades are supposed to be slightly harder on the clutch but not the spindles if balanced as mentioned. Nothing to worry about.
