I just replaced a set on a xt1 with 54" fab. deck they were breaking /splitting from the end back into the blade 1-1 1/2" . I wouldn't want to be standing beside the mower when running . I put Oregon blades on so i'll see how they hold up

I didn't understand the question, nor the reason for the impatience.

After reading the original post a couple times, I think modcub72 is referring to the cutting edge being swept back on the Cub blades leaving less material to grind before getting into the wing. I never understood why they did that other than to reduce cost by saving metal.

.

I believe the edges are angled back to give more of a shear cut.. That is just my guess. Damn.... I can't remember ever replacing the blades since getting the 125. These are IH blades with part# stamped on them. I've sharpen them two, maybe three, times a year and yes, it is almost time to replace.

I would think if one had the welding skills and right equipment, the leading edge could be built up with weld, cutting edge restored, and prolong the blade life.
Unfortunately I have neither the equipment nor skill to attempt it.

I would think those blades being tungsten carbon coated they would never need it.

Ol' George, you always crack me up.
IHinIN, you're exactly right.
R bedell, I've done that many times in the past.
Ambushed, that was really funny and
we're on the same page with do'n with what ya got.
Ol' George now's the same mentality.
CC sells them that way , so that they wear out a lot faster.
I grind the blade in multiple steps on each end.
Less than 90 degrees for each step.
Sorry all for the confusion,
I just wished I could show pictures.

I just put a set of Gator blades on my 54" GT. I'll never go back to Cub blades.

Cub Cadet is a premium line of outdoor power equipment, established in 1961 as part of International Harvester. During the 1960s, IH initiated an entirely new line of lawn and garden equipment aimed at the owners rural homes with large yards and private gardens. There were a wide variety of Cub Cadet branded and after-market attachments available; including mowers, blades, snow blowers, front loaders, plows, carts, etc. Cub Cadet advertising at that time harped on their thorough testing by "boys - acknowledged by many as the world's worst destructive force!". Cub Cadets became known for their dependability and rugged construction.

MTD Products, Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio purchased the Cub Cadet brand from International Harvester in 1981. Cub Cadet was held as a wholly owned subsidiary for many years following this acquisition, which allowed them to operate independently. Recently, MTD has taken a more aggressive role and integrated Cub Cadet into its other lines of power equipment.
