Mulching blade options?

Recommended Posts

OIIIIIIIO
Hey folks! I just recently purchased a fairly nice, running '68 B110. I was thoroughly surprised by how much nicer of a job it did than the junk late 80s craftsman I had been using. (needless to say, the craftsman is now gone!) In any event, I sadly spanked the upper bearing on the center blade arbor, so I've got it all dismantled while Im waiting for the parts. I figure, while Im rebuilding the deck, Id like to try out a set of those "gator" mulching blades. The local hardware store was no help at all, and Im having a bit of trouble finding the right ones online... Does anyone have any idea which blades will work out for me? I have a 42" deck serial #2029958. Thanks! -Pat

Welcome to the club! You need gator blade number 96641. http://www.jackssmallengines.com/Gatsim.cfm http://www.baileysonline.com/itemdetail.asp?item=OEP%2096641&utm_source=base&utm_medium=cse http://www.oregonchain.ca/OEP/pdfs/2009_OregonBlades.pdf

Thanks for your help! I really hate to question you, (You guys know alot more than I would) but the blades on my deck are just a smidge over 14 3/8" long, and those 96641 blades are 16 11/16" long. (Also says their for a 48" deck, mines only a 42") I measured, and it looks like I only have about 1/2 an inch clearance on either side of the blade, with the deck. Any ideas? That one link you gave me actually led me to this one "http://www.baileysonline.com/itemdetail.asp?item=OEP+96642&catID=9464" which I think will do the trick. Other than being half an inch wider, everything else is pretty close, so I think we're in business! thanks again! -Pat
