TLS posted: "OEM blades engaged sitting still I'm at 3750 +/-
I like to say that I normally cut around 3650 +/-
I start loosing my QOC at 3550 +/-
Anything under 3450 and I may as well be mowing in reverse!
How in the world do you measure blade RPMs?
"QOC" is quality of cut?

Another issue: somebody mentioned his blades have an extraordinarily long cutting edge. I assumed (from wear patterns) that all the cutting was done at the tip or maybe just the outer inch. But in a mulching setup where the blade is supposed to take multiple whacks at each piece of cut grass, would a longer cutting edge facilitate this?
