    How many hours do you put on a set of blades before you decide to change to a new set?

    How many sets of blades do you use per season per mower?

    Whenever they get dull and produce a poor cut.

    About a day, unless I happen to hit something, or something. Then they come right off, and a fresh set goes on.

    Change blades every day. Usually 6 to 7 actual hours of operation on them before sharp ones go on the next morning.
