Hello guys. New to the site. Just picked up a 1969 Ford 120. Going to be doing a small restoration to the mower, and mower deck. I am getting the deck welded right now because of some cracks.

I need to find some new blades for this mower. Were do you order them from? Are the still available? If not, can you order universal ones from Oregon?

Thanks guys.

Welcome to the forum. Have you got a model # for the deck? New Holland owns the Ford line, if you have a dealer nearby, check with them.
Is it by chance a Model #59792 deck? If so the blades #'s are 335244.

I'll do some searching. Have you got the old blades?


Here's an exploded view of the 59792. Does it look anything like this:

Here a pic from the aluminum deck manual. Is this more like it?

It is definitely the aluminum deck. From what I hear, blades are not available. I hope I am wrong.

And yes I have the old blades.

I tried to pull up the part#'s for them and no luck. Sounds like either NOS somewhere or aftermarket. Center blade is #331581, outers are #331582. Good luck.

Darn... That's what I thought. I think I will have to make my own out of after market blades. Oh well. I'll figure it out. Thanks for all the help Kenny!!

Glad we got it figured out for you. There are a few folks with the Jake Chiefs on here, was hoping they would chime in. Might know where to start for blades.

I did alot of searching! They were selling the 3 blades in a set #JA500903, they stopped making the set also, It is possible to find new old stock but prices are high!! M&D mower and appliance in Ohio shows that they have a set but they are $260.82 before tax. If you are interested there phone# is 866-914-1252. there part# is HM-JA500903. Good luck in what ever you decide to do! I will continue to search and post if anything new comes up. Chris

Stens [aftermarket] has a wide variety of blades in their catalog. I'll include a link - hope it works. Looks like they carry 515 different blades! There is a poor picture but all dimensions are included in the descriptions with the blades. You should be able to find something that will bolt on and be right. If you find some blades that will work please ask the sponsors here at GTTalk and see if any of them are Stens dealers. We need to support those that support the site. Good Luck!! :thumbs:

Well guys. I found the blades. If you need them, and go to your New Holland dealer and order part# Rex500903. This will get you the set of 3 blades. About $60. Hope this helps someone.

trevtt600, glad you found them. And thanks for posting the part #. I'm sure someone else will be needing a set.
