    I have a 20hp walker mower and I sharpen my own blades. A friend told me that if you take both blades off at the same time when you sharpen them it could mess up the mowing pattern. Is this true and if so why does that happen?

    It'll only mess things up if you get the blades back on backwards, meaning the blades will spin in reverse and obviously not cut anything.

    Also if it's a GHS deck than he might be warning you not to put the blades on the wrong side, because there is a left blade and a right blade and they are not the same. So maybe what he's saying is if you take them off one by one then you will not get them mixed up.
