Could someone tell me the size of the blades for the 60" deck on the jd 420? Specifically the size of hole, length and width. Would I also be correct in assumming that as long as the size is correct, you can get any blades for these mowers? I am still waiting to get the manual on this machine, and a new riding lawnmower owner, I don't want to screw anything up before the manual. Thanks again! This site has been very helpful already.

OE John Deere blades are far stronger than aftermarket blades. JD blade prices are also not bad at all & readily available. I would check with JD before just putting any blade on. My 72" cut JD deck can turn a 2x4 into toothpicks & not harm the blade at all. I know!

I wasn't supposed to mow that 3/4"x 14" steel hooked rod the other day either! Dad left it in the tall grass. The John just tossed it out, no harm done....well, surely dulled my blades.

Bet the sound made you jump LOL. That is a good chunk of steel to be chucking out the chute.

So that's how you split kindling.
I know the sound of steel on steel, hard on blades too.
