To properly sharpen the cutting blades , remove equal amounts of metal from both ends of the blades along the cutting edges , parallel to the trailing edge , at a 25 Â° to 30 Â° angle . See Figure 12 . IMPORTANT : If the cutting edge of the blade has already been sharpened to within 5 / 8 " of the wind wing radius , or if any metal separation is present , replace the blades with new ones . See Figure 12 . It is important that each cutting blade edge be ground equally to maintain proper blade balance . A poorly balanced blade will cause excessive vibration and may cause damage to the tractor and result in personal injury . The blade can be tested by balancing it on a round shaft screwdriver . Grind metal from the heavy side until it balances evenly . When replacing the blade , be sure to install the blade Figure 11 with the side of the blade marked " Bottom " ( or with a Blade Separation part number stamped in it ) facing the ground when the mower is in the operating position .
