Junk
These blade covers fall off. If they don't fall off on their own, you need pliers to release the plastic clips. I almost shed one blade because the quick release latch broke. I took the whole thing off the spindles and bought old style blades. They fit the spindles after grinding off some protruding bolts. Now I can change them with a wrench and they won't fall apart. This had to be a design that was never tested in the field. Just a marketing gimmick gone bad.

Don't Buy Rapid Release Blade Deck System
I purchased a Craftsman pro riding mower which is obviously made by Husqvarna. The very first time I mowed the protective covers fell off. I got tired of trying to get them to stay on, so I just left them off. That of course creates a new problem when you hit a few stones the rapid release plate breaks and your blade will fall off.

You can replace this very expensive part, but it will just happen all over again. I just ran the bolt through the blade keeping the top half of the mechanism on... more

Mower Blades For The Rapid Release System Does Not Work.
I bought a new 54" craftsman mower with the rapid release system. On the first mowing the plastic shield covering the blade attachment fell off. I put it back on but it fell off again. A week later the other covering fell off. I left them off and continued to mow, but decided to examine the system to see if I was doing any damage by not having the covers on. It did not appear so. However, I noticed that the high lift wings on the blades were nearly worn off.

I have had many mowers... more

What A Joke
This has nothing to do with Mowers Direct. The blade system is horrible. I have had 5 Craftsman mowers in the last 20 years. With a socket and ratchet, I could change 3 blades in about 8 minutes! This rapid release system has rubber cover for the blade release. They will not stay on and if they do they fill with dirt. The release system requires a pair of pliers to get them to open. The last time I changed blades it took 20 minutes! The other complaint, the blades only come in a high... more
Cons: Low Quality, Difficult To Use, Durability, Expensive

Don't Purchase A Tractor With This Blade
Purchased a Husqvarna GT54LS. Have same opinion as Robert. I had to buy a Lawn Tractor lift to get under and remove blade. This easy change blade cost me $200 for the lift. Did not buy from Mowers Direct, but from a local dealer.i

Cheap!
Made purely to save the company money. The very thin gauge steel wears out faster than any on the market! No need to sharpen them! The lift wings will wear through and fall off before the blades can get dull. I've mowed my lawn only three times on this new set of blades and they're nearly worn out. - POOR JUDGEMENT BY THE MARKETING/ENGINEERING GROUP!!!!!!

Nicholas,
Thank you for contacting Mowers Direct, sorry to hear that you are not satisfied with the blades. Husqvarna will swap them out for you if they are not properly made. Can you send me a picture of the Blades and I can forward them to the manufacture to see what they can do? Also if you are mowing regular grass they should last you many years.

Avoid At All Costs!!
This has nothing to do with this site or this seller. I'm sure they are great people. This only is a review of this blade system.

I purchased a new 46" Husqvarna riding mower about 3 months ago. My kid hit something and busted the spindle mounts. NP. Stuff happens. But I took the whole spindle, blade still attached, to my local dealer. Understand that this is a blade attachment system with a protective plastic shroud covering it to keep the actual attachment mechanism safe and clean. more

Perfect!
I ordered these to replace the blades on my Craftsman pro tractor 54" cut. Sears had them on backorder and said it would be 2+ months before I could get them After researching I found that these are the EXACT same blades! I ordered them and got them in 2 days and they fit perfect and work perfect!!!!
