    Moving the extra air will pull some power from the engine. What kind of turf will you be on and will you be discharging?

    Maybe all of Scag's blades come from Oregon, but not ALL blades do. Deere makes their own, and so some other companies.

    richardsonlawnnlandscape-
    Marbain is not a coating, it is a type of steel.

    If you haven't tried the G6's from Oregon, try them. I doubt you'll ever use anything else again. They are simply amazing blades, and there are guys here everyday who come on and post in one thread or another that they have bought some and are hooked. There are a ton of threads, and/or posts here about the G6 blades, including this one-

    However, if you are insistant on using Scag blades, here ya go-
