    With reading all the posts on blade grinders here on LS, I decided to give the Oregon 88-023 a try, they were all positive comments on this model. I use it and sharpened 15 sets of blades and did a great job. That 1/2 hp motor has more than enough power to do the job effectively. I got it from Travis at Landscape Supply (FrankenScagMachines and a few others know him) I paid 265.00 delivered to my door, ordered it on 11-19-04, got it on 11-23-04. If you need one give him a call at 1-254-753-7900 or email redmaxman@hotmail.com

    Do you know if you can grind mulching blades with this unit?
    Thanks,

    Is that the same grinder that he's running a special on for this month only for $258?

    No it will not sharpen curved mulching blades.

    Sorry tiedeman, I don't have one of those fancy camera's yet. I'm looking at getting one to post pics here on LS. When I get it I'll pop one on here.

    Technically, you can sharpen wavy mulching blades on any blade grinder (or bench grinder for that matter). You just have to free hand them.
    Which is all you really do with those expensive blade grinders that say they are specifially for mulching blades anyway.
