    Gator Blade ?'s for x758 with 60HC

    I've decided to upgrade to Gator Blades. My question is whether to get the G5 or G6 blades for x758 with 60HC deck. From my understanding, they are the same design, but the G6 is a little thicker and heavier. Is there any reason not to go with the G6? Does one cut better than the other because of the thickness?

    The heavy blade is more for yards with lots of junk (twigs, branches, pine needles, pine cones, nuts, etc). Really thick stocked weeds

    Been running G6s on my 54C deck and they work great. the edge is supposed to last longer than the standard blades. Oregon impregnates a harder metal on the bottom of the edge on the G6s.

    The G5 for my 46" deck on the 318 were heavy than the stock ones, I must say how well they are lasting on my deck too, with all the crap I get to chop up and bag.

    I put the G6 blades on my x758's 60HC deck shortly after buying it. The stock blades didn't do a very impressive job. Of course, the Gators don't either. :-( They are better than stock though. Very thick and heavy. I have no trouble mulching up sticks the diameter of my thumb.

    Im about to pull the trigger on an X758 with 60" deck and some other goodys for it, still making my list of stuff. Where are all finding your G6 Gator blades? I'll definitely be needing some. Thanks in advance.
