- Greater width and thickness extends blade life and allows for longer lifting arch to improve bagging and mulching
- Replacement for major brand: John Deere. Gator Mulcher provides cleaner, more efficient cutting performance can eliminate the need to bag, saving time and hassle.
- The aggressive blade angle increases air flow to push debris up-and-out for superior bagging or side discharge. X-Tended Cutting Length optimizes the cutting efficiency with each revolution
Gator Mulching Blades that fit a John Deere 48C deck. Gator Blades feature teeth on the back side of the blade. These teeth do not cut the grass a second time, they redirect the airflow under the deck to bring the grass clippings back towards the center of the blade to be cut again. This results in shorter clippings and less windrowing (Piling up of grass) as it comes out of the deck.
*There is some confusion on determining which deck you have. John Deere used both a regular 48" deck and a 48C deck on some of the same models. The easiest way to tell is to look at the belt shields on top of your deck. If they are black plastic then you have the "C" deck and this blade set is correct. If they are yellow steel shields, then you have the regular 48" deck and this set is not correct for you.
