    Recently we have been seeing the mower blades on our John Deere Z925 splitting down the center...to the point that its becoming dangerous...seems like an unusual amount of wear considering the blades are about 5 weeks old and the machine is used run about 6 hours a day 3 days a week...???

    Are you meaning on the lift? Is so its a sandblasting affect. In dry conditions with sandy soils I'm getting 45hrs on a set of blades.
