There's a good chance I can help! :D

 

Have a model of the deck or your old blade part number, blade measurement would work as well

Oregon part# 91-203 For the 50" Deck blades and 91-342 for the 42" deck .I would love to put the gator mulching blades on at least 1 deck? I can modify a blade that is close with ease in my cnc if need be, just need the rise to be close, don't need a a caller, I can get them at the big box stores.....

Here's what I can do

 

91-342   Sub to USA made manufacture $ 15.00ea Free shipping

 

91-203 Has been Discontinued but will check warehouse for any remaining.

 

Does not appear to be any aftermarket size mulching blades for either in the sizes you need for these decks

I can get you some foreign ones for less$$ if you wish :D

 

No go on the 91-203, the whole united states is out of them in all aftermarket companies and warehouses. .....

Like I said earlier, I was able to purchase the 91-342 blades ,and did for under $8 each, so I got 6 of them, but I was really looking for the 91-203 for my 50" deck. Well I think 91-573 gator blades might work just fine with some minor mods to it.

Stopped by the local small engine shop and we were poking through blades and looking them up through Rotary when we had all but given up. Started talking weed beaters and line when I looked at the side wall with old blades hanging on it, yup you can only imagine how excited Iwas when the blades iI spied were the elusive 17.3125 blades for the 50" deck!!!!!! WAY HAPPY!!!!!!!

So, how many did you score?
Did you get any to share with your GTtalk friends?
I've got two 50" decks out back that need to be re-done.

 Joe they only had 3 and it wasn't looking good that any more could be had , Oregon has discontinued them and it seems Rotary has as well??  Not looking good ...But there is other options ,but drilling holes accurately may be a real issue for many??

The 1996 Rotary catalog crosses the 91-203 number to rotary number 15-3347 and is listed in the Jacobson blade section

One place that I have had good luck finding parts that are not found in other places, so I went through to see what I might find. These may have some good possibilities.

These are the Jacobson blades that they have.

They usually have good prices on most items.
