    Been sharpening blades for the last 5 seasons. Can count on 1 hand the number of mulching blades i have sharpened. I know other areas of the country use mulching instead of bagging, The 8000 has a larger motor and can sharpen blades faster than a 9000.

    I plan on getting any other options I can to go with my
    MM grinder. Already have the balancer. I am praying MM will take back my 9000 so I can get the 8000. Wish I could be 100% sure the 9000 would have worked with walker mower blades.

    I have owned MM equipment, any issues have always been handled quick and fair. Last season we added the blade cleaner since that was always a bottle neck in our operation.About 80% of the blades can be cleaned dry.The blade cleaner has a vac port so all dust dirt is in your shop vac. Prior to that we were using a parts washer and even hot pressure wash what a mess. So it speeds up our turn around for the customers.

    I have to say that the Magna- Mattic company is the best hands down!!!! Talk about customer service, they are working out the details on returning my 9000 being that I am in the 30 company grace period. They went out of there way and e-mail me back! So professional, they even recommended there other products that will complement the 8000. I am speechless, made in the USA #1!!!:)

    Gerd: / Magna-matic,
    I am so happy with my new 8000, one of the best purchases I have made. It is so well built and user friendly. After using it blade edges look superior to any factory cut brand new blade. NOTHING compares to it! Thank you so much for your help with all this!

    My Magna Matic 9000 is still for sale if anyone is interested. It is only 2 months old, and I am only selling to upgrade to the 8000. This has the extended work table on it and has sharpened about 20-25 blades so far and has only slightly worn into the wheel yet. :usflag:

    I am only selling to upgrade. Becuase the MM is so new, i am asking $590 for the grinder and $44 for the extended worktable. May not be worth to someone unless you were local and wanted to save tax and shipping. This price may save you $100 off of a new one. :usflag:

    I use gator and high lift blades....will this work with them?

    BTW: are gators considered mulching or not? I always considered them the same but I think you guys are saying mulching blades have a bend, which I have also seen.
