Seems cool, but why? To cut the clipping up more before they are discharged?

I think if a mower would cut better with 3-4 blades that it would have the same effect to have a standard blade spin 3-4 times faster. It would make more sense to change the gear ratio to get the blades to spin faster than to have tri/ quad blades to me.

Here's a good reason why people from WV get all the jokes made bout them. Your logic is way off.

Well, the name is impressive.
I mean, "Razor"... doesn't get any sharper that THAT.


And the frog is pretty badass too.

Actually the effect would be quite different. With a standard blade spinning 3-4 times faster, danger from anything struck would be much higher. Energy imparted to a struck object would be greater, and ejection velocity much higher.

At the same rotational speed, a blade with 4 edges will give two times the exposure as will a standard 2 edge blade in the same period of time.

I'm not sure but I think there is a legally mandatdated for blade speed.
