That's really interesting. I haven't seen that one before.
Call it their "sand blade"... Notice in Weeze's pic the outer edge and angle where the sail angles up appears to be what is worn the most. I suppose in theory this design would possibly aid with that.
I can see that as the outer half inch or so does most of the cutting and lifting, so having the sail upright a bit inboard would allow the sail to throw the grass without doing the lifting at the outer tip which would help limit the sand from getting to the end of the blade as well as the sail.
I would like to know how those work if someone ever tries them. I know if I were in weeze's shoes, I would sure give them a shot.
interesting. never seen that blade before. looks like they just folded the sails flat on the ends to keep them from wearing out. wonder how much they cost?
found some. about the same as G6 blades in price:
i found one of those soft sharpening wheels. still about $60 total once shipping is added. i'm gonna give it a shot. hope it doesn't crumble to pieces on me.
Weeze.... check the price here, reasonable i think.
once you add shipping it's about $10 cheaper than on ebay. still about $45 a set. not bad though. i may try a set next year in the spring. i'm worried about the thickness of them though. i don't know how well they will hold up around here.
Weeze, I have two sets of Scag std lift blades with approximately the same hours. One set is .205 and one is .250. I know it’s hard to believe but my .205 set looks better than the thicker blades. Could be coincidence but the hours on both blades is real close. In fact, I ordered a set of .205 XHT’s instead of the .250 because I couldn’t see any advantage in the .250. Plus, the thinner blades should be easier to spin bog less.
The .25 thick scag blades are standard on my ttii 37hp. I got an extra set and the dealer tried to sell me the standard .205 stating they are less strain and (around here) there is little to no advantage to the .25 unless you are doing a lot of bush hogging. I got the .25 anyway only because if i bend one (unlikely) i can swap a blade out and bot have different thicknesses. Next time, ill likely go with the 205s.
Get your moneys worth.
Then i cut them to fit the edger.
