Easily & Effectively Sharpens Blade to Greater Sharpness
Our blade sharpener is made of corundum , with a stainless steel baffle. It effectively improve sharpness and prolongs the service life of blade.
Prevent Grass from Turning Brown
A nice sharp blade will slice through grass and allow it to grow in a more healthy manner. Because “shredded” grass tips will quickly turn brown, leaving your lawn looking ragged and burnt.
Fit any Power Drills & Wide Application
It only takes 10s to install . 1/4" shank fits any power drill and hand drill .For sharpening lawn blade, drill blade, mower, sickle bar cutter, roto tillers, hoe, ax and more!
I like the size, they are not so big that you are working on them after a wind storm and they don't take away from the view of the flowers
These are very good; better than I hoped they would be. Let me say right off the bat that you should ignore the vast majority of the 1-star reviews. Why? Because they are from people who have either no idea what they're doing, when they try to sharpen mower blades, or have no patience, which is essential. Some things just take a little time to do RIGHT, and this is one of them. I have a lawn care business, so naturally, I have to sharpen the blades from my 4 different mowers frequently. That adds up to 10 blades to sharpen, which takes some time, and is generally a pain. I've always used a bench grinder, followed by files and sharpening stones, to achieve a good, sharp edge. But if you use a bench grinder, you know that it's hard to free-hand any mower blade across a grinder wheel and get a consistent edge, because without some kind of fixed guidance system, it's hard to maintain exact pressure along the length of the blade's cutting section. So you often end up with a wavy pattern, lost metal, and inconsistent edge. Those factors don't lend to extended blade life.But these sharpening wheels solve that scenario. Used correctly, they keep a consistent angle and pressure on the cutting area of any blade. If you look at the picture I've included, you can see that the edge has a bit of a wave to it, rather than a straight cutting surface, but that is from using the grinding wheel, in the past. The pic is not of new blades, but used ones, which I re-sharpened with this product. But notice the beautiful, consistent angle to the freshly-sharpened blade! That's the beauty of these sharpening wheels; the angle is pre-set. You put it in your drill, fix the blade to be sharpened in a vise, and start running the wheel back and forth along the edge. In pretty short order, you have a professionally sharpened blade that's ready to be put back into service. My only suggestion is to Not use a battery-operated drill for this procedure. Use a drill that plugs into an electrical outlet, because the process takes a little while to complete, and unless you have only 1 blade to sharpen, the drill's speed will slow down, and you won't get the results you're after. Also, I read one review that said he used an air tool. Well, he's not the only one who has air tools, but the speed of an air tool runs down as the compressor's output runs down (until it kicks back on), just like battery-operated tools slow down. I very much recommend this product! If you have a modicum of patience, skill, and reasonable expectations, you will get the results you seek. Don't listen to the nay-sayers. These things work, WAY better than a bench grinder and with a lot less time and work!
I'm leaving the review at 4 stars though. There was no issue with quality, everything arrived on time and exactly as described. For me personally, I found that I would rather use a grinder or a file in the future. If you prefer to use this type of sharpener, then these will most likely work for you. A normal bench grinder is way faster and easier, but also much harder to keep a consistent angle. A hand file is fairly simple to hold the angle , but just takes longer. I find these to be a middle ground. They hold the angle well, but can just be a little hard to control, unless you have a lot of patience and run your drill at slightly lower speeds.
I bought these for my hubby and he LOVES them! We live in the Ozark upland and our soil is rocky so it is extremely hard on mower blades.
After paying to have our blades sharpened, buying new blades, and trying to sharpen the blades himself, these are phenomenal!
Inexpensive, easy to use, and sharpens like a pro!
I liked the convenience of not having to take the blades off and the price. Easy to use! I definitely recommend this product!
You can put the blade and the sharpener at a 30-degree angle. The sanding is great, the blade is as sharp as new!
Yes. You need secure the blades in vise and to run the tool back and forth from each side, down the length of the blades.
