    We use a 10 inch grinder with a composite grinding head. We change blades each day of mowing.

    When you guys say "every day". How many hours of mowing on these blades?

    Thanks.

    There is absolutely no way to keep the tips square with just a grinder. Just no way.

    A blade grinder is definately a wise investment.

    If you let the word out, sharpening some other folk's blade's can pay for it pretty fast.......
