Some question about mower blade

1. What type of steel is used in lawn mower blades?

Lawn mowers are usually fitted with blades made out of high carbon or alloy steel. This type of steel has the greater hardenability to be extremely resistant to breakage.

2. Can I use a universal blade on my lawn mower?

No, it is recommended not to replace the original blade with any other kind. It might not be suitable for cutting grass.

3. Can a broken lawn mower blade be replaced?

Lawn mowers are often considered worthless once the blade is damaged. The blade is an essential part of the mower.

However, certain lawn mower companies sell replaceable standard and mulching blades. It’s wise to buy from the same company that manufactured it.

4. How will I know when the blades become dull?

Dull blades won’t be able to trim the grass precisely. Instead, it will pull on the grass and leave jagged edges. The torn grasses will eventually change to a brownish color which you will definitely notice

Change the blade as soon as you can because it puts extra strain on your lawn mower.

5. How often should I change my lawn mower blade?​

A typical lawn mower blade lasts around 100 to 200 hours depending on the material and mowing intensity. 

The duration depends on how much your lawn mower is being used. If you use it for mowing large areas, the blades will deteriorate faster. If the blade accidentally hits a rock or tree while mowing, you might need to change it too.

Otherwise, it’s wise to change them once a year, to be safe.
