Geez... this monster uses SIX blades total on the deck?? Wow...

Do any of the "usual suspects" for Bolens parts carry the blades for the GK's? (Like Sam's or Farmersville or any other place...)

I wonder if there are any companies making aftermarket blades for these?

Is there anything special about the blades(special angle ect.)?
How many mounting holes does the blade have?
If you can get some pics and measurements there may be an aftermarket you can match them up with.

I know im a bit late on this thread, is it possible to make new blades, maybe take some full size blades and cut them in half and drill a hole in the end to mount, or maybe find a fixed blade and cut the hole in the middle to fit the shaft? i ask because I now have a GK and am searching for center blades for it. not sure where to go from here. Any ideas?

I guess we could give it another go, does anyone have measurements or pictures of the old blades?

All I know is they are a two part blade, each half separately attaches to the spindle. So is there any way to cross references the part numbers? Jeez this thing is turning into a pain in the butt!

Yes, I think I did buy them from Rick, but I'll be darned if I could find them easily.
