    I am looking for a good blade sharpener for my mowers, I cant stand cutting with not sharp blades. Sharping the blades by hand with a hand held grinder takes a lot of time that I could be during something else. Can anyone tell me of a blade sharpener on the market that can sharpen blades fast and easy. Thanks

    Bought the Magna-Matic last year and love it. Not sure how I survived without it. So fast..........

    Is there anything out there maybe a little cheaper that does the exact same thing? Price is a bit rediculous IMO

    I don't have one yet, but I will. Magna-Matic... I have researched and can't find anything else to their standards, so I'm saving my $$$'s. I agree with being pricey. You could do just a bench grinder but that's not for me.. Good Luck..

    I have 2 R.B.G's. A 1 horse, and a 3/4 horse. I also have a magna-matic balancer. I would not continue in landscaping if i did not have these items. They are worth their weight in gold.

    'Fireball Jr' for a grinder and 'g-matic' for a balancer - great product - average price - highly satisfied.

    I bought Brandlien's Fireball Jr. last year and am very satisfied. I will probably get MagnaMatic balancer soon.
  9. You know their expensive when they're too afraid to display their own prices. Cost Analysis? LOL

    Lots of choices, Nearly, Magna-Matic, RBG, Fireball to name few. I have a RBG 218. A blade grinder will make sharpening blades a snap. Also it will help keep the original bevel .Do a search on this topic and you will find a ton of info.
