husqvarna rider- blades


I have a husqvarna YTH21K46 tractor. the blades are pretty much shot- Lowes sells replacement blades but they look a little different from the factory ones (but they do say for use with husqvarna)- They are the same length- (46)- Do the new blades have to be the "exact" match? i don't want to do any damage

They don't have to be an exact match as long just as long as they don't hit or rub when installed. Blades have a different lift. High lift blades are good for bagging.

thanks- these actually look like mulching blades vs the factory ones..... these factory ones have a curvature to them and the new ones are straighter

Mulching blades are usually sharpened the length of the blade. They aren't great for bagging.

husqvarna rider- blades


I just received 3 new Oregon blades for my Simplicity tractor,
ordered them through Amazon ( 2 day free shipping with prime).
The goal is to keep a sharp set on them and then quick swap mid season and sharpen the old ones at my leisure.
I figure I saved and easy $5 a blade and they look as solid as the original ones.
Yes mounting hole size as well as total length.
