Hello Guys - Happy Fathers Day, I apologize if this topic has been covered but I don't think it has. I was the lucky recipient to be handed down a very nice mid 90's FORD GT85. This was about 17 years ago. I am reaching out to you for guidance and wisdom. The blades on this thing are pricey. VERY pricey. I am told that there is no alternative and I am stuck buying the "tiller blade" that they sell at the New Holland dealer. I believe they were like forty five dollars EACH last time... ANYONE have ANY ideas?    Thanks in advance

Welcome to the forum. 

 

Is this a mower blade or a tiller tine that you want? 

 

We can probably get some measurements and make one work for you.  No sense in paying that much.  New Holland is really spiking the prices on old Ford and NH GT's.

Gentlemen,  Mid 90's Ford GT85 - I refuse to be bent over by my dealer any longer. 3  Blades retail for almost 50.00 EACH!   Part #SBA645310201  - They don't look special. One center hole 3/4" - length is 15.25" - 2" wide  My wife and I visited the local Kubota dealership this weekend to buy her Father some new blades for his 5 year old fancy Diesel Kubota... they were less than $40.00 for ALL THREE!  Any input out there will be much appreciated.

Thanks Guys...it's a MOWER blade.. just want to cut grass... the OE blade on the sales slips and the box reads Tillage Blade. The size is 2" wide - 15.25" long and it has one single mounting hole dead center - 3/4" diameter. I could probably even go with something a tad shorter. Photo attached
