Asked a garden shop today about sharpening my blades on my JD L110 tractor and they said they could do it for me for $12 per, and $13 each additional I believe. Anyway, that's much cheaper than my JD dealer. However, he did say if they have problems getting the blades off they could damage the spindle which they don't cover repair on and that I'd have to buy a new one from JD for almost $250. Yikes! Now I was thinking of taking the blades off myself and just carry them to my JD dealer and they only charge $8 per blade, and then put them back on. But from what this guy is telling me about breaking a spindle taking it off, I'm very hesitant to get the tools and even try it. JD says if I bring mower in they charge like an hour labor charge to take off blades and sharpen so I'll bet thhey will get $75 from me which seems like a ripoff to me, could be wrong on that final price though. They really wouldn't tell me for sure. That's why this other equipment dealer of Toro's and Scags appealed to me when they said I could bring the JD mower in and they would only charge $12 for first blade, and $13 for each after that. It was the possible breakage of JD spindle part that concerns me though. What do you folks think or know about this situation? Is is that hard to get my blades off my tractor after taking off my deck? Could I easily break this spindle part he's referring to? Don't know what to do, but I just don't want to take it to JD and pay $60 to have blades sharpened every 25 hours of usage.
