One quick question, What kind of blades do I need to ask for when i go in to the walker dealership? What time frame should I replace them?
I have a 20 hpGHS Walker, Do you replace them mostly, or sharpen them and reinstall?
Thanks Guys,

We sharpen every 8 to 10 hours of use. New blades when bent or heavy chipped.

Benz, it sounds like you may not be sharpening your blades often enough or are unfamiliar with the process. At any rate, sharp blades have a huge effect on your quality of cut. I see a lot of guys out there using top-of-the-line equipment, yet when you look at where they mowed, it looks like they cut it with a baseball bat. Go get yourself several sets of blades to keep on hand and change them regularly. As stated by PR fect, no need to throw them away unless damaged or worn out. I change mine every 10 or so hours.
