New mower blades from oregon

Bob, The gator blades that they make seem to me like they are alot harder than OEM blades you don`t have to sharpen them nearly as much. But if there is a coating on the fusion blades you would think that would be gone after a good sharpening.

I think they mean that we wouldn't have to have a special grinding stone to sharpen them. LIke diamond imbeded or something like that. But I'm with Ray on how deep is the hardness in the metal or a coating. I have gator blades and they are a heap better than OEM blades.

From what I read about them, it isn't really a coating, it's somehow "in" the steel cutting edge. Actually, I stumbled upon these while looking for Gator blades for my deck. I have a Deutz Allis 1914 (Sunstar) with a 42" deck and wouldn't you know, they don't make Gators for that deck. This deck uses 14 1/2" blades, with a 1" center hole, and they are "formed", rather than a straight blade. No such Gator exists. They make'em for the 48" decks, but not mine. Bummer. WI Tom
