Magna-Matic 8000 or 9000 for Exmark Blades
I need to buy a blade sharpener
I am buying the Magna-Matic
I currently have Sutch Stealth Mowers. I can use the Magna-Matic 9000 to sharoen those blades. But I am buying 3 New Exmarks.
I have seen the pics of the Exmark Mulching Blades and it looks likes the edges and corners need to be sharpened.
Do I need the Magna-Matic 8000 to sharpen those blades.
I was told that SCAG blades need the 8000
Do EXMARKS need the 8000 also.
One last thing
When will Magna-Matic make a grit guard with a vacume attachment for the Magna-Matic 8000
They make the Magna-Matic 9001 has a vacume grit guard.
When will the 8000 become the 8001 withe vacume grit guard

The way to choose the MAG-9000 or MAG-8000 is based on if the cutting edge of the blade has bends in it. Making it look wavey - sometimes people call it a wavey blade. Those wavey (mulching) blades can only be done by the MAG-8000.
I would not say all of one brand mower needs a certian sharpener - it really depends on the blade. Every brand uses different blades with different models, and they change this often.
The MAG-8000 can do just about any blade.
Where the MAG-9000 will only do straight conventional blades.
There is no MAG-8001 because the MAG-8000 comes standard with a vacuum grit guard, it has been standard since the model was introduced. (1999) Just a side note the MAG-8000 now offically holds 3 US Patents for its design, making it the most patented sharpener in the industry.
Please ask if you have any more questions.
