[QUOTE=sgbotsford;4489870]What is a sand blade?
A sand blade is a blade with a very little lift. They are used for thin lawns like Bahia that the higher lift blades suck up sand and blast the decks. I bought a scag mower with 249 hrs. late last year from a person who used it on his 2acres of Bahia with high lift blades and the deck is shot at 400 hrs. The back baffles have come apart and have many holes in them. The deck shell will get replaced this winter because there in not enough metal left in the deck to start welding in patches.
