Oregon mower blades for my Scotts 42" mower
« on: September 22, 2011, 07:28:33 AM »
I just got some Oregon brand blades for my mower to replace the banged up ones where I had been doing exploratory mowing. Any way they look nice but are not very sharp. I seem to remember the other blades I have gotten before were at least sharp enough to cut you. These would be hard pressed to cut anthing but butter. Its not a big deal I'll take a file to them. The vendor stated they all come that way, I was curious what y'all experiences have been.

Most of the newer ones I've gotten have been very dull. I figure it's another case of the legal department controlling the product.

I sharpened the blades and it took very little effort, some of the dullness must have been thick paint. Now if it ever dries out...

It's dry up here. You could come up here and try them out.

Was just too good to pass up.

We have a line of storms covering the entire western part of the state heading our way.

Mine for my cub are always dull with paint when I buy new ones...My neighbor just bought a new john deere d140 and it doesn't cut nearly as good as my almost 10 year old cub with dull blades...I think he wasted his money.
