Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Blade Tried to find the gator blade for my craftsman mower which is over 9 years old, could not find one. Found this one by chance and thought i'd give it a try. The reason? the original blade caused the mower to bog down too much and though the cut quality was great it just slowed me down too much ! needed something that would make this job easier, WOW OH WOW this blade is amazing. Mulching 2 weeks of growth of St. Agustine grass is effortless now. I balanced the blade as it was not properly balanced. Installed it easily with included washer, torqued the bolt to spec, and started mowing, you cannot feel the slightest bogging or slowing down of the engine as you do with the OEM blade which is designed to mulch, bag, and side discharge. If you strictly mulch this is the blade for you ! feels like you are mowing on butter ! Cut quality is fine enough, if you are not mowing a golf course or mansion property this blade does a great job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Toro blade replacement ... I was seeking a blade that reduced or eliminated the problem of clipping buildup under the deck which would stall the mower. Skeptical that any one blade would reduce this design issue I figured on trying this more expensive blade. The first noticeable difference is the wirring noise from under the deck, as if a fan blade was installed. The most obvious difference was that even damp grass doesn't even build up to the point of stalling the mower. As a manufacturing engineer I am surprised that the difference in just the blade design has made such an improvement with the efficiency of the mower cutting action. I have even used this to complete some brush cutting that a normal blade wouldn't even be able to challenge.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sorta Xtreme Instead of re-resharpening a very old 22" mower blade, I decided to buy this. Installed easily with the washers and used original bolt. Since it was new, the cut was nice. I didn't see much improvement in the mulching aspect of the blade though. So they should rename the product "22 IN. Universal So- So Mulching Blade"

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor cut quality and poorly made Purchased this sturdy-looking blade to replace my Toro Atomic 22-inch blade (didn't really need replacing, was just wooed by the Arnold marketing of the blade). It was easy enough to install, but the cut quality was very poor. After the third lackluster mowing, I pulled the blade and inspected the unit. The blade was poorly manufactured and appeared to be unevenly torqued, perhaps by the processing of the turbulence "wings" on the back of the blade. I laid it on a flat surface and it was uneven at multiple locations and just looking at it from the side made it apparent why the cut quality was poor. Further, based on the blade/paint wear, it appears the only real cutting edge that is effective is on the ends of the blades, making the "larger cut surface area" an irrelevant feature. Also, seemed to bog down a bit more in denser grass than my Toro Atomic. Touched up my Toro Atomic, reinstalled, and mowed two yards with perfect results. If it 'ain't broken......taking it back to HD for refund.
