Hello Again. Like I've said before, I'm only 16 years old and I am just starting out in the business. I currently own a 21" Hi-Vac Mower and I use it to mow about 8 Residential accounts weekly. I was wondering, in your guys opinion, How often do you think I need to sharpen the blades? :help:

Thanks,
SH

weekly. Don't forget to balance too.

8 yards, I would go every other week as long as you sharpen at the correct angle, they should last 16 cuttings. How many SF per yard?
