Replacement Blades for JD Freedom 42
I have a John Deere LT166 with a Freedom 42 mulching deck. JD wants over $50 for a new set of blades!!! (The ones I have are too far gone to sharpen yet again.)
Does anyone know if I can put non-JD blades on it provided the spindle hole is the same size and the length is the same (of course)? I assume it won't cut as well with generic blades, but $50 is too steep for me.
If anyone has done this with blades from Home Depot or Lowes, I'd love to get some actual brand recommendations as well.
