I am pretty sure I bent a blade Saturday when I hit a tree root in some tall grass with the 997R.
This only about the 3rd time mowing with this machine and I had the JD dealer install the JD much kit before I picked it up.
I have the 72" Mower deck on my Z997R.
I should have the high lift mulching blades that are still really almost new under there.
I am curious should I just replace the one bent blade. Or swap them all out for something better, that is if there is something better beside the OEM mulching blades.
The JD parts website does show an optional predator Blade for the 72" 997R deck.
Assuming the dealer installed the mulching kit correctly this is the part number I should have on it right now.
It is the OEM JD high lift mulching blade that comes with the mulch kit.
part number M142514.
Anyone have any thoughts or experience with this ?
