Last summer I looked at the Meg-Mo blde system out at Louisville. This is the flail type blade mounted on a central disc. I liked the looks of it, but the guy is a fast talker and I hate to commit dollars to what could be a hair brained scheme. I like the idea of four cutting blades per spindle and the fact ahtthey can swing back when they clock something. It's a sizeable investment to set up the first time, having to buy both the hubs and the blades tips themselves.

I JUST INQUIRED ABOUT THIS BLADE SYSTEM FOR MY 72&quot;LAZER,SEEMS A LITTLE HIGH TO GET STARTED,BUT IN THE LONG RUN IT SHOULD PAN OUT.I'VE ALREADY SAGGED THE AFTERMARKET BLADES THAT I GOT FROM THE DEALER .THE OEM BLADES ARE FINE, THOUGH I STILL THINK THE MEG-MO'S WILL SAVE THE ALUMINIUM SPINDLES FROM THOSE DIRECT HITS.ANY BODY HAVE ANY INPUT?<p>----------<br>DON<br>LIANNES' MOWING

I like the idea of them,but even after startup costs are over,the little blades are 3.95 each x 4,I can get good quality blades for7.95 each,so where is the savings they claim?I can run double blades in an x pattern for the same price,and I can change all 6 blades in under 3 minutes,I bet itll be a lot longer laying under my ZTR changing 12 individual blades each on there own bolt/pin.If u r using your mower as a brushhog,it would help,but who's that doing that,not me.Until I hear from one of us using them Ill keep my money in my pocket.<br><p>----------<br>John D<br>

Well, the sentiment here seems to mirror my own thoughts. I talked to the guy who makes them at L'ville last summer. A bit too fast talking for my tastes. Lotsa bucks to try them out and while I like the idea of four cutting edges I don't like the initial cost or the cost of the individual blade tips.

I've got a set of the Meg-Mo blades I put on My Grasshopper. They're laying in the garage after being used one time. Worst set of blades I've ever tried to use. E-mailed Meg-Mo to see if they would take them back. Never got a response. Wouldn't recommend them to anybody. After I've thought about the four separate blade configuration, I won't ever use mine anyway. If one of the blades comes loose, its going to cause major damage to the deck or something or someone around it, when it sails off of the hub.<p>----------<br>Doc Shank<p>
