Powering Productivity: Blade Grinders

sharpening a lawnmower blade using a bench grinder

Having sharp blades on your mower not only makes your grass look better, but is actually better for its health. A dull blade rips and pulls the grass blades, leaving ragged tears that both weaken the plant and promote fungal growth. Keeping your blades sharp is not difficult and should be done often (dependent on how much and often you're cutting). Sharpening them by hand with a file is an option, but the easiest and fastest way is to use a blade grinder. With a grinder, this task takes less than ten minutes and that's a lot quicker and more cost effective than driving to the store to pick up new ones every time. With the time you save there, and the increased speed you can effectively mow using sharp blades, the only question is, what will you do with all those extra minutes?
