Death to pull through sharpeners!!!

Mower Blade Balancing

Keep an ear on your mower’s sound. If there is a “clacking or clanking” sound under the deck, your blade may be unbalanced. An unbalanced blade doesn’t cut properly, and can cause damage to your mower! Bring it in to be balanced and resharpened right away.

How to tell when you mower blade is dull.

Hi Guys, it’s been awhile. Here is a quick tip on how to know when your mower blade needs to be sharpened. After you cut your grass, look at some of the cut blades of grass. If the tip is angled neatly, your blade is sharp. If there are tears or are ragged edges on the tip, it’s time for sharpening. Dull blades can cause openings for fungus, and it can weaken your grasses resistance to disease. Keep your blade sharp to keep your grass healthy!
