I tried some stens blades on my turf tracer. I wasn't crazy about them. The lift wasn't quite as high so they didn't leave as nice of a cut as exmark high lifts. I just bought some Oregon blades for Russo power that I am going to try. They have a higher lift, are wider, and are a bit heavier.

Worthless. Bent most of them. I cant ever remember bending any Oregon's. I have been buying Oregon's from Bailey's too.

So do you use a gator(mulch) the whole season?
Yes, the G6 specifically. It's not your ordinary Gator. Hi lift, 2.5" wide, .250 thick and a Fusion edge. I started using them last spring and told everyone here at Lawnsite about my experience. Now just about everybody that tries them loves them. They are not designed to mulch, just discharge. To get a good mulching blade you need a low lift blade. Just enough lift to pull up the grass.

Using a thicker, wider, heavier blade is a great way to put extra stress on spindles and cut down the lifespan. I know enough about metal to know that the Fusion blades just have a hard slurry that will eventually chip off and aren't worth the extra money. Oregon does their best work when they market a product because everybody believes everything they say. I'll take the blade that bends over the one that breaks any day for liability reasons. Rotary makes the softest blade by far in the market.
