Once a month, on the lawn tractor, then at the end of the season when I take the deck off, I also do the trim mower. I like my blades sharp.
I can cut at three quarters, rather than half speed with sharp blades, on the tractor. That cuts an hour off my mowing time, and still gets a good smooth cut.
Can't seem to get the push mower to go any faster though. :? :roll: Did I mention that I mow four acres weekly with my lawn tractor ?

I have 3 sets of blades for the riding lawn mower and 2 blades for the push mower. That way I can change them out every other week and sharpen them (with a file) when I get the time or on rainy days.
One push mower blade cost more than 3 riding mower blades together.

I dont sharpen them. I have so much to cut, and some of it is dirt, so they wear out in a season. Plus, my deck is so hard to take out, cause its heavy, and I have no way to lift the mower itself, if Im going through all the work to take it out, Im changing them to be on the safe side!

I have been off the forum for quite a while because of health issues, I have now reopened my small engine shop and I am feeling much better. I'm sure I'll have a couple questions and can't wait to help some people if I can.
