    :usflag: Does anyone know of a good machine other than an angle grinder and bench vice to sharpen large heavy blades. I.E. Hustler 60" XR-7 Deck Blades. Is there a specific bench grinder that is designed for mower blade?
    Any suggestions on sharpening would be great.

    I know of a lawnsite member that has a Lesco commercial blade grinder for sale. Would you be interested?

    i've used the $69 craftsman bench grinder model from sears for two years now. does a good job. use it once every two weeks and its fine. no need to spend $300 on one of those (specific ones), just my opinion>

    That would be me. Thanks Razor1
    I have the Lesco blade sharpener. I can get you the model number if it has one. I haven't really used it that much. I am located near White Marsh MD if interested.
