    I am ready to buy a MAG9000, but I cant figure out if it will work with my high lifts and Gators? It looks like it will but the literature I saw says it doesnt work with Gators.
    Someone else told me it wasnt designed for high-lifts either. This cant be true or the thing is useless.

    I only want to sharpen the front edge not the mulching side.

    Will it work?

    Also, has anyone heard of R+R Products? They sell a grinder for $295.00, and it includes glasses, chepo balancer, etc. Ever used one?

    We have the mag 9000 and we sharpen high lifts gators all the time.

    Only problem blades would be if they are curved mulching blades.

    Im confused. Curved blades? What is the difference between gators, and mulching blades? Same thing right?

    Should I take a picture of both the blades I use so you can tell me if it will work?

  4. yeah post a pic but if they are the gator magnums like we use no problem

    Here are the pics. They came out darker than expected.

    The two pictures of the blades side by side shows Gators on left and high lifts on right (High lift is taller).

    The third pic (on the mower) must be one of those curved blades you are reffering to.
