Have any of you had a G6 blade literally break in half? I've had multiple John Deere blades for my mower and have loved them. The last time I got blades, I decided to give G6 blades a try. First of all, I don't personally like the cut as much. My blades were about a month old, and I mow about about 8 to 9 hours a week. I have a few sets of warn out John Deere blades and have never had anything like this happen. It was my understanding that these blades were made to bend and not break, let alone half of the blade break off. I had a few parts under my deck break, luckily just deflectors and it was only about $30 worth of parts plus a new set of blades. I decided that this was my first and last time using aftermarket blades. I also contacted Oregon last Wednesday and they were supposed to "call me right back." After three to four hours, I called them back to make sure I was not forgotten. I was told that they hadn't gotten a hold of the person they needed to and that they would get back with me. Well it will be a whole week on Wednesday morning. Has anyone else had such bad service with Oregon? I'm not exactly sure what their warranties cover, but should they pay for my blades plus the parts that broke? I would at least think that they should pay for the set of blades. I have no desire to use there blades again and had to stop what I was doing last Wednesday and drive to the dealer and buy parts for my mower. I have attached some pictures to show my warn John Deere blades compared to these practically new G6 blades. I'm still amazed that the blade literally broke in half. What's more amazing is that I spent 40 minutes looking for the 6 inch chunk of blade and can't even find it.
