These blades came with a John Deere 445 tractor that had a 54" deck that I bought and were an added bonus that I did not anticipate on getting.Some people throw out good usable blades like these but I was lucky that this seller had the common sense to keep them.They were in the box that the new blades came in.

 

They really look like they were used for quite some time after they were bent.This guy might share my motto of making 3 attempts at driving up over an object to try an mulch it before getting off the mower to move it out of the way.That's why I use a 60" deck with the heavy duty blades.

When your neighbor sees those, he'll want to know where he can get some.

Seems......You got NOTHING!  Blades are Junk and will vibrate and wear out  your spindles and etc. Scrap Metal.

Hey, HEY! We've talked about that negative attitude. Those are yard art! Hang them on string and watch them swing in the breeze.

I think his new tractor uses the same bulbs and he kept them.
