    Yeah, just what I need, some expensive blade on a blade bending machine.
    I swear I ain't never seen such a POS when it comes to bending blades, 4
    blades bent in 160 hours, I ain't bent but 3 in 8 years on my Wb's (and two I
    knew there was a high chance they were going to).

    They should call them BBR's for Blade Bending Rider, not Ztr.

    That one's even got holes to make it bend easier :p

    Just found an ad about it. Anyone have experience with these. I don't see how this would do better than regular doubles and what's with the holes?

    Guess I'll have to order one and give it a try....

    Topsites, when I helped my buddy mowing, we bent blades several times a season. He had an Encore Prowler, and bought aftermarket blades. I've put close to 2,000 hours on my Gravely's collectively, and have yet to bend a single blade, and I've hit some pretty hairy stuff. I buy only OE blades, and don't know if that is the reason or not.
