anyways, i think after 8 hrs on any amount of lawns on regular blades is time to sharpen. there is alot of guys here that only sharpen once per week too. i dont get it, these guys lawns have that white appearance after cutting due to the dullness.
That's crazy! lol I cut Tuesday through Friday and usually change them Wednesday night and Monday night or Tuesday morning. I can say that some times they could use a change but that most of the times they are still pretty sharp, but at that point I just swap them out anyway. Of course in the heavy growing season in the spring they get changed even more frequently. The once a week changes are pretty much when things are a lot drier in late summer and things get a little slower. I think you re cutting way more grass than I am. I honestly think I would be wasting my time sharpening that much.
