    Arn's stopped doing lawnmower maintenance on machines that aren't Toro, Stihl or purchased from their store so I'm looking for a place that does tune ups and sharpening (or replacement). Can anyone recommend a place? I know that tune ups and sharpening can be done myself, but I can't be bothered with it.

    I've had zero experience with the service department but Equipment Express does maintenance.

    Did a dethatching experiment.

    I like the dethatching blades with the 'whiskers', but they only fit on push mowers. I have a POS push mower and the bag get's full in about 10', dethatching or otherwise, making way too many stops to empty the bag.

    So, I bought 2 new dethatching blades, and modified them to fit on my ride on mower which has a grass bagger. The intention is to more easily bag the dethatched grass.

    $30 each at CT.


    Love this thing. Got it for $1,000 and it pops sick 3ft wheelies on pavement. I'm serious.


    Had to modify the mount included with the new blades by trimming the sides off, and boring out the center stars. Again, this is because these things are made for push mowers.




    The grass is wet today, but I couldn't wait to try. Pretty satisfying, both on leaves and the grass. I settled on the right deck height by some trial and error.




    Most importantly, I don't have to dump my push mower bag every 10'. I'll do the full lawn once it's dry. Overall, great success. For anyone looking to repeat, an alternative may be to take your current blades, just buy the orange whiskers, and drill some holes in your current blade to install the whiskers.
    Very satisfying lol Never had a nice yard until last year and i must admit i look forward to working on it

    and I did not have the only say in the matter (most people just want it done ASAP and don't care about quality).

    If anything we made a better decision because we had a consensus and were all on the same page.

    I bought one of these a few years ago and dealing with the cord is no issue. I removed the bag and hand rake the grass after which is relatively quick and then just run the mower over it.

    CT has one on sale right now for $129.99:

    I didn't know these things exists before this thread. I didn't buy this one but got a SunJoe one from HD. Impressed how effective it is.

    Re: Trimmer line.

    Does anyone have positive experience with more expensive lines? I have been buying the cheap orange 0.095 line and find I go through it like crazy. Always bumping for more feed. Any recommendations appreciated. For use with a gas trimmer.
