    We have an Oregon 023 we bough from Travis at Landscape Supply last year. I like it but it would be nice if it have a little large motor. If get the job done and for the price you can't beat it.

    We bought an Oregon this year (not sure of the model #). Motor is 1.5 hp with a 12" grinding wheel at around 7800 rpm. The thing is a beast and sharpens blades in no time flat. I was impressed. Price was around $800 or so.

    I use a Magna-Matic. I have my blades done quickly. Easy to use.

    Do blade grinders work very well when you use those mulching blades that have 2 tiered blades.
