Getting ready for the Mowing Season


Well, I finally picked up a new blade for the riding lawnmower and some 30 weight Briggs Stratton Oil so I'll be ready to attack that Grass the minute it shows it's ugly head.  I'll pick up an inline fuel filter later this week and then I should be good to go.  The belt that drives the blade hasn't been replaced since new and it is about six years old so that will probably be a project sometime during this season.  I don't fix it if it ain't broken - - - or at least I try not to. winkbiggrin

Hey Poncho, that new blade that I bought isn't very sharp to the touch - - - - should I sharpen it a tad before installing it??

No.......a mower blade doesn't need to be that sharp...it will cut just fine the way it came. If they are sharpened at too great an angle it will get damaged real easy but rocks, dirt etc.......

I always thought that if grass was cut off with a sharp blade.. it caused the grass to turn brown,, whare as cutting it with a simi sharp blade,,[more like beating it off with a stick] it would stay green,, any truth to that" for you grass cuttin gurus,,
I don't really care either way,, just trying to get educated, in the realm of cuttin grass,,confuse  I try to get the wiff ta do it,, but that hardly ever works,,,no
