The fusions I've been running on my other mowers will have the rear lift wing wear through from our sandy soils in areas before I run out of meat to sharpen and don't seem to be effected as easily by small pebbles and debris. The fusions do take longer to sharpen though.
That's strange? My OEM blades say Marbain(MB) on them. I sharpen mine every two days(10 hours) and I still have plenty of life left. Must be a 52 thing...I would like to try the fusions, but haven't got around to it yet.
