    I purchased a new Gravely 260Z last spring. Beginning of season this year the hardened (Marbin?) blades were still sharp so I did not touch them. If they need to be sharpened this year, is there any special method as opposed to a regular blade? I was wondering also if Gator makes a blade for this machine and if there is an advantage to using them on it.

    So it sounds as though the blades that are on it are difficult to sharpen. Normally I use a hand grinder with a disk.

    Marbain blades aren't really that hard to sharpen.

    Neither are Fusion blades, but I would say Fusion are the harder of the two.

    I would think there is a Gator blade available for your mower.

    Ok thanks. I guess I just hit them with the grinder then.
