    What did you think worked better than the magna matic? I think my magna matic works great! Well other than the price anyway....kinda steep.

    i am not sure what you would find better? we have had every other style and our magna matic is by far superior, but is a heafty price for any single use tool.

    Hello,

    I would be also curious to know what model of ours you tried, and what you decided to purchase. I looked in our records and I could not find you has having taken advantage of our 30 day trial.

    Thank you,

    Hello All,

    Just some added info - food for thought.

    Regarding comments about our prices - if you actually look at the other brands out there Magna-Matic is far from the most expensive. The other item to remember is if you would buy an RBG, Oregon, etc there are several accessories you have to purchase that we include with our sharpeners. Often the $300 - $400 models need a "approximate" $100 dresser, $70 grit guard, etc to first equal what we make included. Don't forget that many of the other brands are made in China or have motors from China. Another pitfall in choosing a sharpener is the wheel cost - our competitors generally have much more expensive wheels. I like to use the example of an inkjet printer - the printer is cheap but you'll pay the price of the printer again with your first ink replacement.

    One more point on cost to take note of - lawn care professionals spend anywhere from $5,000 to over $20,000 on a commercial mower - now even with a $5,000 mower the MAG-9000 is only 12% of the cost of the mower.

    Thank you,
