    Hello All,

    Due to some internet service provider problems, i am unable to connect long enough to leave much of a post. It will be repaired soon (the cable company tells me), and i will post info about this topic.

    In the meantime, please be polite to one another in the forums.

    Thank you,

    Anybody out there! Still waiting to hear the end of this as I have a set of these as well. I have not tried to balance them.

    Since Monday i have used meg-mos for turning leaves into dust. I have NOT TAKEN them off yet, There is no vibration in the deck AT ALL. I had a set on a mower i sold to a Friend that i'm helping and he has used the blades since this past spring and does nothing but sharpen and put them back. He said there is no vibration and the mower has 1200 hours with the same spindles.

    You should do what you feel is best for you. I will put this to rest soon.

    Hello All,

    We are currently gathering info to provide a very informative post about the MEG-MO blades here.

    I just want to let you know that we have not abandoned this thread.

    Again, please remember anything in rotational motion requires to be "in-balance" for vibration free operation, and requires maintainenance of that balance condition, IF it wears or material is removed. This is not a sales pitch/propaganda, it is a fact of physics.

    Thank you,
