How often should I sharpen my blades? I am cutting 18 residential yards a week. Thanks
How many times are you gonna post this? I am reading this twice a day. Thanks
but no seriously just keep them sharp and replace them when sharpening is no longer an option. you shoould always have spare blades anyway
I do have an extra set. I am changing them out every two weeks.
every day, dull blades rip the turff, and stresses out the grasses.
very bad in drout areas, and it leaves the top of the lawn looking yellow in a few days
If you are very busy as I am and dont have alot of time, keep a sharp set and when you replace them sparpen the dull set in your spare time. Of couse before you would need them again.
Every day,keep em sharp
You should be fine sharpening once per week. We would mow your entire schedule in one day.
Good luck this season.
If only 18 yards a week I would sharpen them once a week.
When they get dull ! Everyone's circumstance is different, different grasses, soils, etc. I change mine out daily on my main machines, but lesser used machines every 2-3 days (I check them to ensure they are still sharp before they get loaded for the day) More importantly is how you sharpen them and what kind of edge you put on them.
