I ordered the high lift blades online from a New Holland dealer and this is the response. "The part is on back order from New Holland. They do tell me it is available to expedite but at an increased shipping cost to you." Have you ever heard of anything like this? The part should either be available or on back order. What the heck is going on here?

Harley; Do they mean the blades will be shipped direct to you or are you going to pick them up at the dealership? Just a note on the blade subject, I went to the Deere Dealer for a set of blades for the 345 mower with a 54 inch deck. I have always used the Deere hi-lift blades and been happy. A man standing beside me at the parts counter suggested that I buy a set of Gator blades instead of the Deere hi-lift, that he liked them better than the Deere blades. Parts man said the Deere blades were $48.00 per set, the Gator blades were $52.00 per set, so what the heck I'll try a set of the Gator blades. I've saw absolutely no diffference. We have one 345 mower with the Deere hi-lift another 345 with the Gator blades, all looks the same to me, what are the Gator blades supposed to do that the Deere blades don't? Frank.

Gator blades are supposed to mulch better, but not available for my deck. I have JD high lift on my GT235 and wouldn't use anything else, now I'm just trying to get them for my New Holland.

In my area south of Detroit, NH dealers don't like to carry inventory. What they do here is if you want parts and can wait up to a week in some cases, they have weekly shipments that you parts can come in on--they generally don't charge extta for the shipping. However, if you want them next day or anything less than a week, they can order them , but will charge you freight. That's their way of "thanking" you for not having to stock the parts (a bunch of bull if you ask me).

I can't believe you can't get the Gator blades from anywhere OTHER than the NH dealer---shop online--you might find them cheaper and quicker and might even get free shipping too. If you do find them call your NH parts dealer manager and/or the owner and give them an ear full. I had to do that about having my dealer ship me cans of aeresol spray paint. The order came into their place and sat there for over a week. I called them and asked why they didn't ship it to me (I was working a 1,000 miles away from them at the time). Of course they didn't do their homework and said it was prohibited from being shipped from the government because it was "explosive". Not being one to take NO for an answer, I made some calls and found out they were full of S----. It still took more calls to the dealer and I finally got it shipped.


Self edit: If these are aftermarket blades, they may not be coming from NH Parts in the first place. The dealer may not want to buy a minimum quantity of them. So to not lose a sale what they may be doing is going down to the local lawn equipment supply---which may be the SAME place YOU should buy them from--, buying a set at or just below retail, then marking them up their typical 100% and passing the "additional" costs on to you. You're happy and they're richer.

But I'm jis' sayin'

Harley.....I think most things are avail for a price. I don't really understand how parts take so long to ship in the tractor business. I guess i am really lucky in my business whether ordering 300 oz of gold or ordering a $15 part for a pc of jewelry....they both can be shipped overnight for $9 to $15 bux FEDEX. Most small parts of a tractor can be shipped the same, just think parts departments want to accumulate orders first when it comes to tractors. Just think if you are buying online, don't really think the price is really that much different whether back ordered or expedited...what was the price difference.

Still waiting for the price difference. I've looked all over for aftermarket and was told by a couple places they don't make them. The blade is 20 3/8" long if I measure straight across and 20 1/2" diagonally, with a 1 1/8" center hole. I can find some that come close but not an exact match, I'm not sure which measurement to use either.
