So about how long do you guys/gals keep your blades in rotation?
I trash my blades when they get rounded off at the tip, when that happens it leaves stringers etc, there isn't a time table, it all depends on mowing conditions.
I just trashed my 1st set for the scag last month, almost 3 seasons, I keep from 5-7 sets in circulation. I try to keep them in an order so that all of them dont wear out at the same time, and it depends on the quality of metal in them also as to how long they last
I have bought 6 sets this year so far and they are just about worn out. I resharpen them everyweekend. I use one set every week and keep rotating them but Like the guy above said when they get rounded he trashes them. I try to regrind them down to the point where there not rounded anymore but they dont last long after that .....can only resharpen 1 or 2 more times
3 seasons. Or if they get bent or badly chipped.
I run them until they are unusable, I don't run out and buy new sets jst b/c they are rounded at the ends or whatever. Just run them until they are like 1inch thick.
