 Blades for Disc Mower

I was in a large tractor supply store yesterday and picked up a blade for a disc mower. It's designed puzzled me.

It is sharp on both sides but has a twist to it. If it is sharp on both sides how do you use the side that is twisted up? The angle of the sharp edge looked about the same as for a mower blade. Are you able to install it upside down as to the edge's angle and it cut okay?

That is the intension of the blade design. The bevel should be on the opposite side of the blade so that when you flip it the bevel is up. The twist is designed to throw the crop up ward into the conditioning rolls or flails and help to keep the crop from getting entangled. If all you have is a mower with out conditioning the 15 degree twist is not real important.

I think I understand what you are saying. So of what value is the second edge being sharpened? If you install is so that edge is the cutting edge the bevel would be down.

If they had sharpened the other side on the second edge it would have been able to used it twice.

Kenny: Shouldn't you be out honing your tractor driving skills (oh yeah, you're better than me at that so I guess you wouldn't have to) but what about your sewing skills?; are they up to par with mine (as far as you know)? tehehehehe Those canopy curtains aren't going to make themselves now!

What bug got in your ear Earth? I don't think I have ever seen KT say any thing hostile to any one. If I am wrong point me in the right direction.

Tony, calm down---it's okay. No bugs in my ear---potatoes maybe arararrrr. Me an' Kenny were playfully throwing words at each other about sun canopiesand such on another post, and his sewing and tractor driving skills (well, really Ken was throwing them and I was dodging them).

oneace,

Thank you. Always knew you were a gentleman. I really do appreciate your comments. It does amaze me how often it seems we must tear someone down over nothing. Can we not disagree but do so as gentleman and ladies?

earthwrks could not fully apprecaite my suggestion for a plywood canopy for his tractor since he said price was his main concern.

In all seriousness I found much of his comments rather funny. Never seen anyone sling anything that they did not end up with it all over them self either. Guess for a guy that admits he must keep running in figure 8's he is doing the best he can. Laughing out loud

Good Day and God Bless
