    I just checked out Mega-Mo, one of the new sponsors. Has anyone out there tried these blades yet? If so, how'd they do?

    Would like to ditto the question.
    I'm concerned about lift, or lack of it.

    Same thing I was thinking. I was also wondering if there would be clogging around the "disk." Looks like nobody out there has tried them.

    There are MANY threads on this topic. I have numerous issues with different aspects of this product. In theory it should work better than you could ever imagine, but with every mower deck getting the same blades/lift, it cant be good for all decks.

    Then you have the sharpening issue, whick Roy counters with...."You don't need to sharpen then as often because there are 4 to every spindle." A normal blade sharpener CANT sharpen these blades while mounted to the disk (mounting bolt will interfere). And holding that little blade if you unbolt it isn't my idea of a safe sharpening condition. If they were rigid mounted to the disk, computer welded, and balanced, and cost not much more than a standard blade, I'd buy them. The swinging back when you hit an object isn't a big issue with me, and at the blade tip speed I see, they mind as well be solid mounted, cause they aint gonna swing back when I hit a rock!


    I think he needs to DONATE a few sets to a few members here on different machines and let us evaluate them. Its just way too much money to "try", and if they don't work well, thats almost a $200.00 to $225.00 dust collector!!

    Now he's a sponsor, he needs to step to the plate and allow us to evaluate them.

    Right now I can put a brand new set of OEM Excalibur blades on my Lazer.
    Excalibur.....Cost = $33.00

    Meg-Mo......Cost = $194.85


    I can buy almost 5 more sets of Excaliburs with the money I save. Even if I run double Excalibur blaes, I can buy almost 3 complete sets for the price of one Meg-Mo.

    He needs to rethink his pricing structure. If they work as good as his site says, MAYBE I'd pay a hundred bucks for a set for my Lazer, but then I have a blade system that I am unable to keep sharp!?

    :rolleyes:

    I Tryed Them When It First Came Out On a Pro 150-50. They Clumped The Grass within 10 Feet Of Cutting And The Grass Wasen't wet.
    They Sit Under My tool Box.

    Thanks for the input guys. Clumping within 10 feet, coming from a pro like John Gamba, says a lot. Yup, the cost is steep too. I'll pass on the blades for now.

    Did you start with brand new machines?

    Or newly painted undersides?

    Your product is interesting
