    Clumps will only be worse with megmos. Do a search, I posted my results with them many times.

    Just wondering why you say they clump. After my search I noticed that most said that they like them. Just wondering if your grass is wet. I am looking at getting meg-mos but would like to learn more about the problem you are having.
    Thanks

    It's not a problem I'm having, but one I've HAD. They came off after 2 hours. The LONGEST 2 hours of my life! I used them in spring, lawns were not wet, but they were full of internal moisture, as Michigan spring lawns always are. Clumps were the worst I've ever had in my life. This was on a one year old Exmark Turf Tracer with 17 HP. Do more searches, most guys on here seem to NOT like the blades in my estimation. You can always try them, but I think you better be ready to return them.

    The first couple of lawns I used them on they were great. Then I got to a lawn that had a lot of tall weeds and crabgrass in it. They were awful at that point. The blades were folding back leaving a lot of stringers and the clumping was pretty bad.

    do they dull faster than regular blades? and are they a pain to sharpen, how long do they take to change

    i hear you but what then the cost of the machine would be outrageous if they used they best ex car radios factory is ok aftermarket is better. but just hearing a few inputs makes me think the old way might be the best way. i do not know any local guys who use them
