Have you ever had to sharpen one of those gator blades yet? The whole thoght of sharpening one on my own just feels like its above my paygrade.

yup, what Sean said.... I got wondering about that and looked it up on their site. You sharpen the blade part only, not the fins.

While you only sharpen the cutting edge, and the Gator blade does move a lot of air, I do believe the fins help in breaking up the grass when mulching, its those multiple edges are what set it apart from a standard mulching blade.

True, I noticed that I can bag a LOT more with the gator blade. I guess a lot of it is due to cutting the clipping smaller. Whereas with a regular blade clippings might be the length of your pinky, with the gator blade they are about the length of one finger joint...

Hi everyone...I will get naked and bark at the moon before I ever bag grass. But it's a free country so God bless ya.
