The last blades that I ordered on the internet were from sten dot com.

They were good blade, cheaper $$ and lasted like the OEM!

I got a set for my craftsman at a local auto parts store.  They have lasted at least four times as long as the ones that came on the mower.  I don't know the brand.  Like sawmill blades, some are better than others.

AgriSupply has really good prices on Oregon blades.  Depends on how their shipping costs stack up since you're not in their area.  They carry a good stock of idlers at a good price also.

The aftermarket blades are generally good but often thinner and lighter so may not last as long particularly in sandy soil conditions. However, they are often cheap enough to keep a spare set in the garage and change them out as needed rather than spending time sharpening.  I bought locally, cheaper than buying online and paying freight plus I didn't have to wait.

Online at Jack's Small Engines.  Good service, prices, and products.

I live in Arkansas.  We have lots of rocks.  Big rocks, small rocks, in between rocks, and lots of em.  They even multiply, almost like rabbits.  Blades don't live long lives here. :D

Been contemplating blades for my new to me mower. They've been beat to death, and are broken on the ends from hitting the mulching shield that was on the bottom before I cut it off. I might just leave it alone. As long as the preponderance of grass is knocked down I'm pretty happy. Rebar would probably work sufficiently for my purposes  :^D

In a previous life I worked on the order desk for an MTD distributor, we could not cut out our dealer and sell directly to the end user. Same with Briggs and Stratton which was our primary line. I don't understand that when the American distributors could.

I agree with Lee.   Both the wife and I have become Amazon shoppers.   We have a Lowes, Tractor Supply and several small plumbing suppliers here in town.  Most everything else is an hour or more away.  UPS and FEDEX are dropping stuff off here several times a week.    I find that I can generally get John Deere mower blades for my commercial zero-turn delivered for a few dollars less than ordering through the dealer and making the 10 miler drive to pick them up.

I run a Grasshopper mower mow about 100 hours a year. I had been running Oregon Gator blades and they were holding up good but the cost was getting up there. I found some called Copper head made by Rotary USA made blades and they have held up well. I just bought six which is two sets for my mower off Ebay late winter for less than I had bought one set the last time.
