    Has any one heard of this or tried it? www.meg-mo.com. Curious to see if any one is using it and with what kind of results.

    Don't waste your money. I ordered a set a couple of years ago and was highly disappointed with the finish cut. They are now sitting on the shelf. Meg-mo's are not all Roy cracks them up to be.

    I had a set and they were only on my mower for about 2 hours. They require great amounts of horsepower to turn and on my 25 hp 60" mower they did an awful job. Most notably they left a whole lot of rooster tails sticking up because the blades kept folding back.

    If they blades were stiff (not able to fold back)they would be great, but last I checked they aren't. The concept is good, but the product needs improvement.

    I have used them on and off for about two years. You do need a higher hp to keep them moving and you need to move a little slower. Surprisingly, I use them with great success in the spring because I have to double cut almost every lawn and these things clean up clippings really nice. On you second cut, you also pick up any stragglers that may have been left behind.

    They are more of a rough cut blade system and not very useful for high quality work. They are not new ether and have been around for many years they are commonly used on tractor mowers and rough cut mowers. As well as some field and brush mowers although they mainly use a flail system of cut. :)
