There are many variables to take into consideration:
- Product Amount/Type
- Harvester Skill Level
- Care and Maintenance
We have some customers who never change a blade in a season and some need our 5 piece blade pack or more. It really depends upon the circumstances of your individual farm.
With a good operator who keeps the blade out of the dirt and cleans the blade area after each use, one could reasonably expect to have functional cutting edge performance for 300-400 lbs (136-181 kg) of greens.
Sharpening the blade takes about 15 minutes with our Work Sharp Knife and Tool Sharpener. You can watch a video demonstration on our Farmer’s Friend YouTube channel.
