Discussion in 'Lawn Mowing' started by MCGRAIL LAWN, May 28, 2003.

  1. Ok

    Right now I have 2 Sutch Stealth Mowers (Cheap 33") with Mulching blades.

    I am buying 3 New Belt Exmark.
    I know you all say HYDRO but I dont Like the way the exmark HYDRO works.

    My question is witch Magna-Matic Blade Sharpener do I need to sharpen the exmark mulching blades.

    The 8000 can sharpen curves
    The 900 cant

    The 8000 is =$550.00

    Any one that has a Magna-Matuic please help me out

    Thank You

    Hello, You have the prices wrong on the Mag-8000, It's about $996.00, and the Mag-9000 is $550... Have you been on the Magna-Matic web site ?? It explains which sharpener does what,
    with which blade.. I don't know what the Exmark Blades look like.
    I have a Scag, and my guess is they probably look very close. If so , then you would need the Mag-8000. That is what I have...
    Hope this helps.....

  4. How mutch do gator blade cost??

    I find OFFICIAL Exmark blades 2 for $25.00 on E-Bay

    And They look like they have curves that need to be sharpened
  5. I talked to a Salesman @ Magna-Matic

    I am buying a package they dont normaly sell.

    I am geting the Stand and an Upgraded Balancer
    and either the 8000 or 9000

  7. Does anyone with an Exmark use a Magna-Matic Sharpener.

    Do I need the 8000 or will the 9000 do the job
