They look right.

The idea is they cut like normal blades, then the "saw teeth" chop up the clippings as they come off the blade.

Those do look homemade or very beat and worn.

They do not look right to me.

Gator blades, at least the ones I have used, all have the "slots/teeth" cut into the wing. These blades do not appear to have any wing left, which means there is no lift.

Plus the "teeth" on a Gator are not big shark tooth looking things but slots cut at an angle then the tips are slightly bent.


They may have started life as a Gator but, to me, it looks like they have been reworked well past their life span.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
