I bought the machine new two years ago. Overall I'd say it performs fair w
ith the exception of bagging. Here in South Texas the Live Oaks produce pr
odigious amounts of tiny leaves. Leaves that for some reason this mower ha
s a difficult time lifting away from the lawn.
Searching online for replacement blades suggests they may be proprietary.
That guess based on not finding cross reference lists.
A former Craftsman riding mower did exceptionally well with Gator blades.
Would like to find something like that again.
If worse comes to worse any recommendations on a gas powered self propelled
mower that does really well sucking up clippings and leaves?
