Blade Sharpening
For best results mower blades must be kept sharp. The
blades can be sharpened with a few strokes of a file or
on a grinding wheel. We suggest they be sharpened
after every 25 hours of mowing. Do not attempt to
sharpen while on mower. If you mow in sandy soil
check the blades after each two mowings. The sand
wears the blades away rapidly,
a.
DISC
{WITH PARKING
BRAKE ENGAGED}
When grinding,
care should be taken to maintain
blade balance and the blade should be checked
for proper balance before remstaflation
on mower.
Unbalanced
or bent blade will cause excessive
vibration
when running,
and eventual
damage to
mower
or engine.
Replace
bent
or damaged
blades.
FIGURE

I
b_
L
To check blade balance, drive a nail into a beam
or watt. Leave about one inch of the straight nail
exposed. Place center hole of clean blade over the
head of the nail (Fig. 23). NOTE: CENTER HOLE
OF BLADE ON NAIL. IF BLADE iS PROPERLY
BALANCED,
BLADE SHOULD REMAIN IN POSITION SHOWN IN FIG. 23. IF EITHER END OF THE
