Customer Questions & Answers

How thick are these blades

Asked by: tank
Not totally sure but can assure you they are not 3/8" thick. Most likely the blades are .139 or .149 thousandths of a inch.

I assume these blades will fit a LXT1050?

Asked by: Josh
Josh; Believe it or not, you can find actually find the part number in your owners manual... Tip your seat up, and get BOTH the Model & Serial #'s of your unit, and the date of manufacture(I learned this the hard way, as the DOM could change the year you need to look-up parts for. Similar to Car Manufacturer's). It will be also needed if you use the Cub Cadet Site / Book at Local Home-Depot. Here is Cub Cadets link: Hope this helps you...

50 inch blades with round hole

need blades for 2005 cub cadet 50 inch zero turen
Asked by: buddy
Buddy, these blades right in the description info say that they are for "2006 and after" which means 2006 and newer not older... If you can't find blade info in your manuals provided, I would recommend calling cub cadet parts... but I will try to help you the best I can. Based on the fact that you said that your unit is a 2005, I did a bolean search, and went to, and found the 50" Zero Turn Blades, these have a "round hole center" as you mention in post, not a starred center hole like the picture you share.... Cub Cadet indicates that the OEM blades for a 50" Zero Turn, the OEM Part number is #490-110-C127. I also found a listing for them at using the info 2005 50" zero turn blades after too much time i suggest look at for this part number 01010168-0637. After 90 mins of searching, I've concluded you didn't give enough info for me to match as accurately as I would have been comfortable with, but I found you 2 sources with what I believe are the correct blades, next time how about all the info on your unit... I came across listings for generic blades, but they had wrong centers Sadly after having gone through the listings here, I don't see "a match' to what your seeking, and I can't give advice what to do, but if it was me, I wouldn't use a blade with a "different center hole" than what You took off... If you can clean your blades up a bit, and see if there is an OEM Part number on them you might be able to find what you seek by searching google, please see attached picture from cadet parts and more

50 in. Lawn Tractor Blade Set is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from New blades for my mower Bought these for my Craftsman 54" mower. They were cheaper than the Sears brands. Original blades lasted more than 2 years so I won't know how this set compares until 2018. Have used this set for 3 weeks now with no issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 50 in. Lawn Tractor Blade Set The blades fit, were sharp enough, and cut the grass well. Actually what can a person say about mower blades other than that. Am satisfied and will buy again in a couple of years when these are worn out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great cutting These were very easy to install because I had the mower jack that I got at home depot. they were just what I needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Part exactly what was sought... The critical concern for me, was the star cluster center as I have star spindles; and didn't want to replace what I didn't need to. I used to operate "Highway Mowers" for NYS for several years, as well as a private construction company, which the owner has several properties... having owned / used several types / brands of mowers over the years, helps me offer an "Honest Opinion" As pointed out I personally have used / had several brands of Lawn tractors over the years; and due to preventative maintenance efforts, I still have three in use currently for various reason's: spare mower, snow blade, drag behind mower deck / lawn sweeper in fall, de-thatcher / aerator in spring Currently my Cub Cadet 50", which is starting it's 7th season of use, of which I started getting ready a few nights ago, will be used again at multiple locations; my lawn, the adjacent front lawn, road edge, and trailer it to other properties..... Yes I find tree branches from wind etc, and debris from motorists in the 6 ft roadside buffer zone which I try to mow twice a month, each time done, does collect debris from cars.... but that's why you walk the area first, and then make a high pass initially, and lower the deck for the second pass. I have no clue about the terrain's your mowing... maybe if you try raising the deck 1 setting higher, and look before mowing, and avoid intentionally mowing tree roots or rocks every other day like my neighbor does, your blades will last longer, providing a better looking finish cut as well... Maybe you should also consider having your blades sharpened and balanced professionally also... Please don't do as a reviewer commented in another post, and use 1 blade out of 3, replace all of them at same time, or deal with a messed up finish due to difference in blades from previous use & sharpening The tractor itself in my opinion isn't cheap, as another reviewer claimed; It's durable, unlike some that are sold by other companies, currently on the market today. These blades might be from a chain store vs. "Dealer" , but it has been my experience that these blades are the real deal based on OEM stamping and packaging combined with the durability of OEM parts. End user's who maintain their units would know immediately if the blades were generic by weight, or as soon as things didn't react correctly. I just bought another set to put on the shelf for in-case of situations, which I ran into last summer, where I some how broke a blade, having a spare set on shelf for "in-case" of readiness, was worth it, although delayed 40 mins., having spare blades on hand allowed me to finish the property that night. I'd like to share that this is the third set, bought from my local HD in NY #1266 over the years now. Again, this is only my opinion, I'm pleased with my mower, blades and the efforts of my local store, to have what they can readily available, like batteries, "correct blades", belts, even tubes for tires. My opinion is thumbs-up for HD's efforts, to help home owners...

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wast of money! Blades are lite-weight for application and size of tractor. This holds true thought out the tractor. The whole package is waste of money.
