i only do 3-5 yards a day. they range from 1/4-2 1/2 acres in size.
i'm not saying my blades were in perfect shape when i mowed my own lawn. they weren't. i never had any issues though. they cut fine even when dull. of course on a homeowner mower you aren't going 8-10mph when mowing either. you are only going about 5mph. also when i did my own lawn i only mowed it every 2 weeks. so about 15 cuts a year.
