Yeah, just what I need, some expensive blade on a blade bending machine.
I swear I ain't never seen such a POS when it comes to bending blades, 4
blades bent in 160 hours, I ain't bent but 3 in 8 years on my Wb's (and two I
knew there was a high chance they were going to).

They should call them BBR's for Blade Bending Rider, not Ztr.

That one's even got holes to make it bend easier

Just found an ad about it. Anyone have experience with these. I don't see how this would do better than regular doubles and what's with the holes?

Guess I'll have to order one and give it a try....

Topsites, when I helped my buddy mowing, we bent blades several times a season. He had an Encore Prowler, and bought aftermarket blades. I've put close to 2,000 hours on my Gravely's collectively, and have yet to bend a single blade, and I've hit some pretty hairy stuff. I buy only OE blades, and don't know if that is the reason or not.
