    I have 2 sets of blades for my 48 inch wb scag. The set that came on it and another set I bought at the dealer. The extra set I bought are made by scag. Are these good blades or are there some better blades I can buy. Thanks.

    I think they are fine, I havent found to much difference in blades. As long as you sharpen and balance them on a regular basis then they will be fine.

    The ''scag'' made blades are better than some after markets out there

    How often do you guys change or sharpen blades? I don't think I have been doing it as much as i should.

    I sharpen every night, same with greasing the zerts on the mowers and cleaning it off. Just make it a habit every night. I take about 30 mins and 2 beers to maintain every night when i get back. Dull blades can kill a lawn.
