  • Carbide mower blades
  • Are they worth the extra cost? I would say yes. In 2014 I bought a Bad Boy zero turn mower. Unknown to me it came with carbide blades on it. This is the fourth season on them and they are still in good shape. They have been used hard and hit many stones etc.
    Worth the extra money.

  • Never used them nor seen any. Must be carbide tipped -solid would be very expensive but carbide being very brittle, so it doesn't take much to chip it. Pictures would be nice but I realize they'd would be hard to get.

  • No. They are carbide coated blades, not carbide tipped.

  • Any leads for buying them for a 22 inch mower? I've had no luck on line!

    Thanks,

  • I don't know if these are the same thing, but looks like the brand name is OREGON GATOR BLADES...see LINK below. I'm still skeptical. Carbide is brittle, will chip/break easily, it doesn't matter if solid, coated, or tipped. More info required on its manufacturing process.
