Top Lawn Mower Blade Sharpening related questions

Unevenness in your lawn is an obvious sign of dull lawn mower blades. Sharp lawn mower blades should be able to cut grass at a consistent height with just one pass. Worn blades would force you to make multiple passes of the mower to make up for missed patches of grass. What’s more, inspect the grass after mowing your lawn. Your blade needs sharpening if it tears (rather than cleanly slices) the tips of each grass.

You should replace your lawn mower blades if they have large chips or dents. Usually, these damages cannot be smoothed out and sharpened. Another way to tell if you need a replacement is to inspect the thickness of your lawn mower blade. The metal can become paper-thin and weaken over time due to dirt and other yard debris. For your safety, you’re better off hiring a Tasker to replace your lawn mower blades properly. 

You can schedule your lawn mower sharpening as soon as the same day or the next day. But it’s best to post a task a few days in advance to give yourself more time to get offers. You’ll be ready to schedule your appointment as soon as someone is available and you accept their offer. 

Experienced specialists can sharpen a lawn mower blade in less than 10 minutes. Working time may vary depending on the type of lawn mower blade, sharpening method, and a Tasker’s experience. 

You should be able to touch a mower blade with your hand without getting cut. Contrary to popular belief, a razor-sharp mower blade does not cut better than “butter knife” sharp blades. Further, a mover blade that’s too sharp dulls more quickly, leaving you to replace the blades more often.

How often you sharpen your lawn mower blades depends on how often you use them. The rule of thumb is to sharpen your blades when you notice a decrease in cutting performance. Sharpening mower blades once a year is good enough for some homeowners. Other experts recommend sharpening your blades at the start and around the middle of the mowing season. But you may need to sharpen your blades more often if you mow over debris, such as rocks or sticks.
