    Hi,
    my company makes lawn-mower blades. A lot of them and many different kinds.
    If you would have a wish list for how a lawn-mower blade should function, look, cost, etc.., What would be on the top of the list.
    For example: Is it stay sharp properties, air lift function, flatness, color, offset, mulching properties, easy change over, sharpness, etc.


    What is bad with the blades in todays market?
    Comments, suggestions??


    Sincerely,
    BladeMaker

    John,
    Educational time for me.
    When you say No Clumping or double Cutting, what do those two terms mean?

    I can make some assumption, but that might be the wrong assumption.

    Like to learn more.

    -Blades that have reinforced cutting edges with some kind of metal that dulls very slowly.

    -Longer Blade lifts

    -Double blades made into one blade

    -Blades that have notches by the spindle holes so you just have to losten the spindle bolts a little bit and slip off the blades. Easy on, easy off. Especially for peoples like LGF that go through 3 sets of blades every day:p

    Clumping== Big Glob's Of Thick wet Grass, Going threw Tall very wet grass With low lift Blades And Slow Blade Speed.

    Double cutting=== Mowing Over The Grass, Then Having To Cut again To Get Ride Of It.
