    When running double blades do you have to sharpen your blades as often as running single blades? We are considering the double blade thing but are wondering how often the sharpening of 18 blades is going to take? We run 2- 61", and 1- 52" , this could take a while to sharpen.

    Yes you still have to sharpen your blades just as often. Some will tell you that you can just sharpen the upper blade every other time but I sharpen or swap out both blades when they get dull which is usually every 4 hrs.

    Yes...but the top blade doesn't get beat up as bad.
