From the Manufacturer

The Gator Mulcher 3-N-1 blade unique design has revolutionized the way blades mulch grass clippings. The angle of the Gator teeth redirects the air flow to keep the clipping directly in front of the cutting edge. The longer the clippings remain in front of the cutting edge, the finer the size of the clipping. These 3-N-1 blades can be used for mulching, bagging, or side discharge mowing.

Comments / reviews:
I needed three of these for my 50" deck. Granted, my old blades were a little worn and out of balance, but I was still surprised by the performance of this blade set. When mowed, my lawn looks like carpeting - very smooth, even cutting, and the amount of grass pieces blown out the chute is greatly reduced.

I am guessing that the construction of these blades is such that it creates a vortex of wind that pulls the grass up, and keeps it inside the deck longer to be more chopped up. My deck IS NOT a mulching type, but these blades have really added to its ability to be more so.

The only slight downside (and simultaneous upside) to these blades is that they are a much heavier construction than the OEM blades - very beefy. That additional weight (and strength) puts more of a load on the PTO when engaged, so if the engine is not at high RPMS, it can stall. This is a minor inconvenience far outweighed by the performance of these blades.

===============================
FALL UPDATE

I just mowed a fall lawn that was blanketed by leaves. In years past, I would be aiming the chute toward the center, then getting out the mulching handmower or the rake and dispensing with the pile of gathered leaves. Not this year, these blades made dust out of the leaves as I drove over them, and there was nothing left to clean up; not with another mower or a rake. Great choice in blades, after nearly an entire summer/fall season, they performed better than expected.

Perfect blades. Mulches nicely however you may need to slow down in the longer grass to allow the blades to chop and chop. If you mow on a consistent basis then these are the blades for you! I love them!

I purchased these for my old AYP Yard Pro 20hp 50" triple blade mower (Similar to Craftsman GT5000/GT6000) and boy do they rip!

Before they arrived a used a friends Craftsman "Professional Series" 28hp 54" triple blade mower with BRAND NEW "Craftsman" labeled blades to mow my lawn. They did decent but still left some uncut grass in the thicker areas.

Then, I installed these Oregon Gator blades on my old "outdated" AYP tractor and WOW they do some serious work. The "Gator teeth" really destroy the glass clippings into very small pieces making them much better for mulching. They made a normal style blade seem useless. They also seem to be more effective in the thick grass areas.

Buy this style if you're in between these and regular style blades. You'll be much happier.

I what expected, I have used Gator blades on lawn and garden tractors for many ears. I think it cuts grass and mulches leaves better than a simple blade absent the the eleved tabs

I keep a couple of sets of these. They are heavier than the original equipment, and are great around the ranch...cuts some pretty tough stuff...I've bent a few of the OEM Craftsman blades cutting about 1200 ft of highway frontage. So far, I have not bent these blades. When they are sharp, I can cut a full speed with the garden tractor...never could do that with the OEM blades. I could only use the 3/4 speed grass cutting setting. Awesome blades!
'just a comment...I can't even begin to guess how many hours are on this Craftsman garden tractor. I've had it since 1997. Kohler V-twin engine and have used Mobil 1.. It gets used all the time, instead of getting the bigger tractor out...just more convenient.

great blades! strong, thick, powerful. They produce fine clippings and my tractor hums very nicely again!

**It's important to note that these fit my Husqvarna GT52XLS perfectly which has a 52" deck, NOT 50". The Husqvarna manual is also wrong stating it takes 16 1/4" blades, yet when you measure then it's 17 1/2" (these are 17 3/8')

perfect fit

nice price and product

Wow, actually commercial quality, not just stated as so, price fair, highly recommend. Evergreen properties.

These blades do an excellent job of clean cutting in even heavy grass. They maintain a sharp cutting edge and actually "chew up" the grass to reduce clumping at discharge of mower.
