Frequently Asked Questions
On average, most mower blades last up to 100 to 200 hours under normal conditions. The number of hours can be as high as 400 if you use high-quality blades. When blades get dull, you can sharpen them with a grinder or metallic file, but the blade sharpening will only work for 2 to 3 times.
A dull mower blade can force you to make several passes in the same area. If this happens routinely, that's an obvious sign to sharpen or replace the blade.
In general, you will want your lawnmower blade sharpened to about a 30-degree angle. The blades should be sharp enough to cut the grass without tearing or ripping it, but not so fine that the edge is razor-thin and easily damaged by the terrain or small debris in your lawn.
To sharpen powered mowers, for either electric or gas mowers, it is best to remove the blade from the mower before bringing to Pollocks Home Hardware. For push mowers, we ask that you remove the handle and bring to the store. The turnaround time to sharpen mowers is generally 7 to 10 days.
