    Just curious how many sets of blades for your primary use mower most of you keep on hand? I'm up to 10 sets for my two Gravely's, which allows me to go about a week without sharpening.

    I keep 4 sets for the Dixie. 2 Gators and 2 hi lifts. Right now I'm using the Gators. I run them about 8-10 hours and change them. I don't buy a whole lot of spare parts. I prefer to let the dealer wrap his money up in parts.
