    Can anyone tell me the difference between the 9001 and 8000 Magna-Matic Blade Sharpeners (besides a $424 price difference)? I know the 8000 is a "universal" model and the 9001 is probably some improvement over the 9000.

    I am wondering if I need the 8000 cause my Toro Groundsmasters are left side discharge (72" deck) too. Any help about them and whether I should get the blade balancer too would be greatly appreciated. Thanks guys.

    65hoss, I seem to remember seeing some replies from you about the balancers. Any thoughts?

    The 8000 is for straight and also for the curved mulching blades.
    9000 is for straight blades.The 9001 i believe the only difference between it and the 9000 is it comes with a grit guard on it.
    As far as how it would do on your toro's i dont know ive never had the groundsmaster are they those huge toro's i see mowing parks and industrail site?

    They are front-mounted machines with 72" decks. And yes, I do use straight mulching blades with them.

    Thanks for your info.
