When to Sharpen Lawn Mower Blades

Product Links → Doc discusses sharpening lawn mower blades and making adjustments to the reel mower. This subject cam up due to a “white haze” on the lawn. This haze is caused by blades of grass that are not cut well. These blades of grass shred on the end and the tips turn brown. This give the lawn a white haze appearance. Doc sharpens the reel mower and tightens the adjustment of the reel to bedknife.

Doc, I have a Mclane GK 25 inch. What is the maximum height I can cut? I have a Zoysia lawn, and I know you talk about this in one of your videos, but I cannot find the one that mentions it.

Hey Doc,
Is there a method for me to repair a small nick on my GK bedknife? Not the reel, but the bedknife. Not sure how it happened, but I have a small gouge on the leading edge of the bedknife. Can I file it out, or will that mess up the edge for cutting?
