Importance of Regular Blade Sharpening
Our technicians can service and repair a wide variety of equipment, and blade sharpening is overlooked even more often than oil changes. Oil changes protect the inner workings of your equipment, but dull blades can also make your motors work harder than necessary. Dull blades can even be a safety hazard, particularly in equipment like chainsaws. For lawn mowers, it’s a good idea to inspect the blades at the beginning of spring and then after every eight or ten hours of use. For a homeowner with a small yard, a blade may only need to be checked two or three times a year. Grass that’s cut or ripped unevenly can be a sign that it’s time to check the blade’s sharpness.
