How often do you guys sharpen your blades, or replace them?

I try real hard to do it once a week.
All equipment is wore out. <- Never mind. All equipment has been repainted and with new decals. It's like I have new mower's again!

The search is your friend.
But anyway we have 10 sets for each mower and change them every day and on Thurs and Friday they get changed in the morn and at lunch. Thursday we cut 35 acres with 3 mowers and Friday is 65 acres with 4 guys the sharper the blades are for me the quicker we get done and the qoc is much better. I spend the morn on Saturday cleaning and sharpening about 50-60 blades. Takes about 3 hours tops
