Seeking Gator Mulching Blades

    Can't seem to find the Gator Mulcher for a 48" Cub Tank w/fab deck. Anybody got a source?

    I can find a (gator) blade that is 5/8" longer than the OEM but I am afraid it wont do.

    Would appreciate comments regarding performance of the gator blade too!

    BTW: I have had my cub tank for better than a month now. I have put about 8 hours on it and am very pleased with it's performance. It's fast... I have figured out how to turn without divoting the yard and have reduced mowing time down from 4 hours to a little more than 1 hour. YEAH!

    I would like to be able to get off of it while it is running without having to set the parking brake. Also, I like the 10 gallon fuel capacity, but it is inconvenient to have to fill it from both sides I would prefer a large crossover so that you may fill from one side or the other.

    (Of course I have had this same gripe about automobiles for many years...WHY Can't Detroit put the gas filler on BOTH sides?)

    Anyhow...if there are any "watch out fors" on the Tank I'd appreciate hearing em!

    LawnZZ THANK YOU for your help..

    But those are Gator Blades for Cub Cadet riding mowers. NOT the Cub Tank ZTR.

    I know....it seemed simple.....but it's not.

    We have them. What is the length of your blade, you need to measure from corner to corner( / ). Also, what size center hole. I show 16-17/32" long w/ a 3/4" center hole, and two 5/16 outer holes. $7.51ea. + $7 flat shipping! Thanks PS You'll need to call me on these they are not on the online store.
