    Or I guess this question goes for anyone, actually. I am trying to begin projecting my expenses for next year when I go full time. I was wondering how many times you can sharpen a set of blades until you toss them. I plan on having 5 sets of blades for each mower (except 21") and changing them every day. Will also be using a Magna-Matic sharpener and balancer. Also what brand of blades do you guys recommend?

    Thanks

    could be only once or 50 times you sharpen them, depends if you hit something, or cut in alot of sand etc. I don't hit too much, but I do cut alot of sandy lawns, and it wears the fins out real quick.

    no issue. he's a forum sponsor...as was flex. for paying to have his logo on top of the page he's earned the right to comment as he pleases. don't think so? contact the administrator.

    geo is right. Someone asked about blades, Meg-Mo is a sponsor, he answered the guys question. I'm not going to comment about flex-deck.....everyone has a different approach.
