 New blades for Agri Cutter 5" Bush Hog

I just bought my first new set of blades for my Agri Cutter 5' bush hog and noticed that the cutting edge is not sharpened to a knife edge. It is flat and about a 32nd of an inch wide. Is it supposed to be that way or am I supposed to sharpen it?

Lee, yes it supposed to be that way, and when you re-sharpen them you should reproduce that edge again.

If you put a 'knife-edge' on a bush-hog blade it will not hold an edge, or hold it as long, as that 1/32" flat face will, it will get worn off very quickly.

Also, if you do re-sharpen the blades on a bush-hog be sure to get them VERY close to equally weighted when your done or it will vibrate or shake badly from the inbalance and that will put a LOT of strain on the driveline. That will dramatically shorten the life of the seals and bearings in the gearbox.

A bush-hog is not meant to make a fine cut on the grass, it is strictly a fast slash operation.

Best of luck.
