So im trying to buy new blades for my JD GT 275 with a 48" deck an either the books at stores dont go back far enough or i get a blank stare when i tell them what i have a need the blades for. Has anyone else had this problem when trying to buy new blades? An can anyone help me with a part number for blades or the length that i will need?

If that is the correct part number I can get you some nice USA made ones for $15.50ea

There's an option for a regular cut or mulching blade both the same price

Brian's quoted price is the same as the discount site I was referencing. JD will be 25% more, minimum.

Brian's service vs JD's? That's like comparing your local cafe vs McDonalds. Brian actually cares about service.

Correct on all counts and then some. Brian, I may switch to Bolens just because of you :rocker2:

 

 

whats the difference between high lift an regular blades?

High lift is for bagging and/or sucking up the grass so it can be cut. Some blades like Snapper has pre-drilled holes for ad-on ''wings'' for more lift. General rule is higher hp engine is needed for the bagging, engine works harder, similar to spinning a airplane propeller.

Having trouble finding replacement blades for my 38" ford deck too.. NH 9849582

 

From what I measured, they're 19" long, but have a 3/8" mounting hole. All the newer blades either have a larger hole, or a star-shaped cutout.

I can probably get something that will work, here's a 19'' with 3/8'' center hole

Are you measuring the blade as shown below to get 19''?
