    Thanks Mow-Daddy. Looks like what a couple days worth of mowing on a normal set would look like.

    Very impressive.

    So far my biggest issue is I still have to scrape deck out once in a while.
    If they could come up with a self cleaning deck now.

    Dry leaves and pine needles too. So they don't make them for the JD's? That sucks

    Ok hopfully in correct order.
    Top pic is left trim side blade.
    Middle pic is center blade.
    Bottom pic is right discharge blade.
    39 hrs. Zero sharpening, almost 120 acres. Kbg grass with weed mix.
    I'm at the point now where I know I will not have to sharpen blades all summer. Unless I hit somthing pretty solid.
    100% sold on the Lazer Edge blades.
    I was sceptical at first, but as a carpenter for 26 years I was also sceptical when carbide tipped blades first came out.
    We used to file skil saw blades each morning before work. Then carbide tipped blades came out. Never sharpened another skill saw blade after that.
    This is the exact same thing.
    Never going back to steel blades.

    Sure hope they come out with them for Scags soon, I'd love to try a set or 3.

    Thanks again for real life testing in conditions they weren't designed for. :rolleyes:

    not to be a skeptic, but those blades look extremely dull. maybe it's just the camera angle. I would never run a blade that dull however, I can't imagine it leaves a good cut unless you go slow. How's the cut looking? I think I will order a set for my hustler and do some video and real time reviews on these so I can compare myself. Thanks for sharing, just hard to tell from the photos if those even have an edge on them.

    They're cutting very well.
    We have a totally different clientele I'm guessing.
    This particular mower does industrial cutting, is the cut perfect. Nope but that is not what I'm after. I'm looking for a quality cut day after day week after week.
    With as few hassles as possible.
    Even if a person sharpens regular blades daily, by 1 hr into the day the razor sharp edge gone.
    In my view ppl are way to over top and primadonna about qoc. It's grass.
    You cut it on Tues, by Wed it's no longer perfect. So all that worry over a perfect cut that doesn't even last 24 hrs. Not my thing at all.

    Try one lawn...I have a rbg 712 and can sharpen all my blades to a factory razor sharp edge and not only after the firat lawn is the razor edge gone but being so thin at the razors edge they're more prone to chipping when hitting even little sticks. So I only sharpen to pretty sharp but not razor sharp. As long as it doesn't tear the blades it's ok
