    Im thinking of buying a blade grinder from MowMore.com. What size should I get as far as HP and wheel size?

    I do my blades every night so I need something that is going to hold up.

    3/4 - 1 hp, 8 - 10 inch wheel. We have a 1.5 hp, 12 inch wheel but we have a lot of mowers.

    The best http://www.magna-matic.com/ To get blade burn sharpening a blade on a magna matic, you almost have to want to.And the cut edge guide makes for the perfect angle.

    How do you take the blades off without turning your mower upside down?

    Tilt it back, and remove the blade.

    No need to turn it upside down.

    I actually have a cheap mower that won't start UNLESS you tip it upside down. I think it has something to do with gas flow, it has been abused for many years. I'm gonna haul it off to the dump this spring.
    I'm obviously not in the business yet and I should buy better mowers.:rolleyes:
    oh and thanks.
