Does anyone have a part number for a oregon gator blade for a 8230. Or would a 21 inch universal work?

I personally have not used the Gator blades. However, I do like the Lawnboy Tri-Cut blade. Seems to mulch, bag, and side discharge well. I do have a very nice, near new 21" blade, stiffener, and washer that would work nicely on the 8230. I believe it is an Aladdin blade. If your interested I can take a picture and post it here.

Yes that would be great too see.
I currently have a what I believe is a lawn boy blade on there seems to be a regular blade style. But when tightened down the blade bows inward towards the stiffener....

I will try to get a picture of the blade taken and posted tomorrow. The old style flat stock Lawnboy blades need a big fender type washer between the blade and the stiffener. The washer is not used on the 19", only on the 21". Bill

I had received this blade as part of a package deal with a mower about a year ago. It appeared to be very lightly used as you can tell from the close ups of the sharpened areas.

Yes that looks just like what is on mine now.... only the washer was on top of the blade. Like blade adapter then stiffener blade washer nut ..... I guess the washer could and should go between the stiffener and blade....

AFAIK, all Lawnboy 2-stroke mowers use the same blade for their size 21" or 19". A generic blade might require the obsolete blade stiffener, though.
