    1/2 is good for a blade as long as the ones on a 60 and up. Get down to the smaller blades and a 1/4 will work best.

    Considering the OP mentioned having to cut it twice tells me he already knows that the blades have to be engaged to cut the grass. TS just has nothing better to do then rack up his post count. He'll be "king of the hill" if he keeps posting useless crap. hahahaha
