Q: is 1=1set or 1 blade
by Robert from Michigan on May 19, 2016

A: Robert - all Gator blades are priced and sold individually, not in pairs or sets.

Q: Jose,Are all 42 in blades for husquvarna universal.i have no clue what model .It does have the 22 hp twin motor tho.I would prefer mulching blades.Thx,GREG
by GREG from New York on June 05, 2015

A: They are, but they aren't. The reason why I say this is there are some limitations when it comes to these blades. The 2008 models and older are going to have a different setup and fit differently. Another difference is if you have a fabricated (welded) deck instead of a stamped deck. The blades would be different. From what you are describing about your mower, it sounds like it is a YTH22V42, if this is the case and it is a 2009 or newer, then you should be able to use the Gator Blades model 596-900 with your mower. I would suggest taking a look at the part number on the serial tag sticker under your seat and let us know what that is and we can confirm, but as I said it does sound like you own a YTH22V42 and if this is the case, these will fit if it is a 2009 or newer.

It Does The Job.
The blades work as advertised, much better than the typical mulching blade design. Just don't try to take too much off at a time.

G5 Gator Blade- Superior Mulch Blades By Oregon
Recently purchased a set & installed on my Husqvarna 42" tractor & was blown away by how these blades slaughter the clippings into fine particles that require NO raking (and my lawn is thick Kentucky Blue)! Mowers Direct had them shipped to me within 4-5 days. Highly recommend these.

John's Experience With Mowers Direct
Web Site


"I usually purchase parts for my machines from the local lawn store where I bought them. However, they don't stock aftermarket parts and after a little web research I made a decision to try Mowers Direct. They hit a home run and have earned my future biz if ever needed!"

Does A Great Job!
I've used these mulching blades 5 or 6 times and the grass that escapes from the sides is cut so fine it almost looks like sawdust.

Very satisfied with these blades.
