I talked with my new mowing buddy yesterday about his Lazer and the fact that it eats blades! He had a set on his mower that were shot after 3 days of use! Is this a common thing with the Lazer? Is it due to the deck design? I can get about 5 sharpenings out of my Choppers before I trash the blades and buy a new set. I saw him today and we were both cutting weeds for the most part. He wanted to know if my Chopper was leaving un-cut strips of grass/weeds and I showed him that it wasn't. I ragged him pretty hard for using worn out blades and he told me the set he was running was brand new, put on last night! They looked bad already...........just curious if it is him or the blades or the deck design.
