    I have a question that maybe someone can help with. I would like to sharpen my own blades. What or how does everyone sharpen their blades. I am not looking forward to taking the blades to the dealer just to get them sharp. That is 30 miles one way / out of my way. With that said I don't cut lawns for a living. I just want to keep my blades sharp on my fastrack 44".

    Personally, I know this is bad, but I use a angle grinder, then balance them with a cone type balancer.
    I have been doing this for years and it works for me.
