mott mower question

Postby brichter » Sat Dec 15, 2012 9:14 pm

Since we don't have many mott mowers or any other flail type, I was wondering how you sharpened the blades on these mowers or do you just change them out? I can't envision any way to sharpen them without taking a couple of days.

Billy Ray,

This makes the sharpening job a LOT easier. Image

Remove mower from tractor, turn mower upside down. 4" grinder to sharpen blades in place. They also made a blade sharpener for the blades.

Turn the mower deck upside down to replace the blades. I don't bother to sharpen the blades, have to replace the blades every 2 or 3 years - hit rocks.

If you replace the blades, save some of the better blades and the pins.

Edit: Corrected spelling.
I have an excuse. CRS.
