    We attended the Louisville Farm Machinery Show 02-11 to 02-14. Had a great show. Only one person from LawnSite came to the booth. We were so busy that we didn't get to stop for lunch but that is what shows are for. If there are any questions that we missed, please post again. I will be at the show in Dubuque, Iowa this weekend. Hope to see some of you there.

    I'm considering the Meg-Mo's this season. A couple questions....

    How easily do they attach, and what is the process to remove and sharpen the knives? Are they more difficult or time-consuming to remove and sharpen than regular blades?

    Will switching to Meg-Mo's decrease front blow-out on an ExMark TT? I get horrible blow-out when using doubles on leaves, although skirting on the front of the deck takes care of that. But it would be nice not to have to install skirting every Fall....

    Naturescape, The Meg-Mo attaches just like your blades do now. All you have to do is take your old blades off and put Meg-Mo blades on. You have two options to sharpen, 1. Take the disc off the mower, fold the knives back and sharpen on the bench grinder, 2. raise the mower deck, fold the knives back and sharpen with hand grinder. Please do NOT take each individual knife off as this has a locking nut with red locktight and when you take off knife it loses locking qualities. As far as the blow out you have, Meg-Mo is more like running single blades. Your doubles sit lower so therefore you get blow out. Let me know if there is anything else I could help you with.

    I'm curious. Other than being basically double blades, what is it about the Meg-Mo design that makes it do so much better? From a casual look at it, it looks like the business end of them is pretty much like regular blades.

    And for my 48" lazer z hp would I have to buy $270 worth of blades????? Or is that $89.99 for all three discs?

    Here is the deal, $180 for a set of meg mo's, or $30 for a set of high lifts that will do the exact same thing....I would rather spend $150 somewhere else, cause you will not convince me that meg mo's cut better than any other blade. I dont care if you never have to sharpen them. Go to Eric Elm's web page. He didn't use meg mo's, and his lawns are awsome! He used doubles, high lifts.

    Dont mean to rain on your parade meg, but I will NEVER pay that much for a set of blades!!!!! Sorry.........
