Question about 9000

I'm interested in a 9000 sharpener and after checking the website I'm left wondering how the sharpener works on high lift blades. I realize this model doesn't work with wavy blades but I'm afraid if I buy it the back of the blade will hit the table similar to what happens with my bench grinder.
Thank You

Hello,

As long as the blade has no curves/bends in the cutting edge the MAG-9000 will take care of it.

In other words HIGH LIFT blades are no problem for the MAG-9000.

Thank you,

I also am interested in the 9000. I use gator mulching blades on one of my walk behinds and they are not curved so I assume the 9000 will sharpen them? I also notice that the horsepower on the 9000 is only a half horse compared to the 1 hp 8000. Is the difference noticable?

The difference is in noticable only by how much pressure you can push into the grinding wheel with.

i.e.

If you so choose, you can push so hard on the 9000 that you will slow the motor - this can overheat the motor and damage it. But NEW for 2003 the MAG-9000 has a THERMAL OVERRIDE - this will shut the motor down until it has cooled enough for normal usage.

The MAG-8000 is near impossible to slow by pushing into the grinding wheel because of the shear power of the 1 HP continious duty motor.


******
This difference is helpful where rough employees are concerned.

When the MAG-8000 originally debuted in 1999 it came with a 1/2 motor just like the MAG-9000. In 2000 we upgraded the MAG-8000 with the 1 HP continuious duty motor with dual capacitors and a solid state switch (for immediate starting).

One other reason for the 1 HP motor, was people were always requesting a 1 HP motor - eventhough the surface speed of the grinding wheel is the MOST IMPORTANT aspect of a grinder NOT THE HP. At the time in 1999 the MAG-9000 and 8000 both had 1/2 HP motors - and people saw us as inferior to RBG because we had only 1/2 HP models and they had models with 1 and 2 HP - eventhough we ALWAYS sharpened the blade much faster than they could.

So - in the end we have the MAG-9000 with a 1/2 HP and the MAG-8000 with a 1 HP - and we continue to be the fastest sharpeners in the industry.

Ok .. the end of a slightly drawn out history lesson ... lol ...

Thank you,
