i went and searched some info about the meg-mo blades system and i was wondering on just performance alone would they be worth the price compared too highlifts or gators for all seasons of mowing or woud just having regular blades sharpened be just as good.they will be going on 2 laser 60inch exmarks with liquid cooled 27 kawis:drinkup:

Meg-mo's will certainly cut down on the frequency of sharpening blades. You will also notice your grass/leaves being cut up finer with less clumping. This will obviously eliminate some double cutting.
Are they worth the money? Depends on how valuable your time is. You will spend less time sharpening and slightly less time mowing. Knives will also last longer than standard blades.
Speaking strictly performance- Just keep with set of highlifts sharp. In the fall double them up with a set of gattors and you will basically have the same performance as meg-mo.

Just got off of the phone w/ Mr. Roy Megli (inventor of Meg-mo blades). He told me he guarantees 100% of the product price back if you aren't satisfied.

I talked to him yesterday and it sound like a great product he uses them daily I will be ordering 2 sets this spring.

Mr. Lawnsmith, let me know how you like these things.

oh, i was under the impression that they were lighter.. but if they are stalling engines then they arent.
one of the main reasons i am considering them is i thought they were lighter.. i.e. less belt/clutch/engine wear... but if they are stalling engines then its a tradeoff.. performance for wear.
anyone else have anything to say about the weight and/or engine load?

Here is my opinion and experience, I purchased a set and a set of spare knives or blades. When I installed them and used the mower for the first time it sounded like a helicopter and it just about vibrated me out of the seat. I thought maybe I had gotten a bad set so I called Roy and he acted like he was offended. He told me to change out the knives which I did and they shook just about as bad. When I would get into thick grass the knives would fold back and leave strips of uncut grass in between the blades. This was using a JD 737 Z (23hp) I sent them back and received my money back in about a month. Maybe I got a bad set, Maybe not? Some guys like them I just want to be fair. They did not work for me and if your in thick or high grass, I don't see how they could work.:confused:

They are my fall blades. They are great for shreding leaves. I have not had great luck with them in the spring. Tall wet grass is not where they shine.....

Thanks for giving this input. We were considering trying a set on one of the Lazer Z's but I think we'll hold off. Might be great in the fall but not now. You guys just confirmed my intuitions!
