The btades can be sharpened with a few strokes of a file or D _ SC on a grinding wheel . We suggest they be sharpened after every 25 hours o ! mowing . Do not attempt to sharpen while on mower , tf you mow in sandy soil check the blades after each two redwings . The sand wears the blades away rapidly , a , When grinding , care should be taken to maintain FIGURE 20 blade balance and the blade should be checked for proper balance before reinstailation on mower . Unbalanced or bent blade will cause excessive vibration when running , and eventual damage to mower or engine , Replace ben _ or damaged blades , b , To check blade balance , drive a nail into a beam or wall . Leave about one inch of the straight nail exposed , Place center hole of clean blade over the head of the nail ( Fig . 2f ) , NOTE : CENTER HOLE OF BLADE ON NAIL . IF BLADE tS PROPERLY BALANCED , BLADE SHOULD REMAIN IN POSI - TION SHOWN IN FIG . 2t , IF EITHER END OF THE BLADE MOVES DOWNWARD , BLADE IS NOT BALANCED .
