We provide Expert Lawn Mower Blade Sharpening and Balancing


     Robinsons Hardware sharpens and balances lawn mower blades         

How often and why should I sharpen my lawnmower blade?

Your sharp lawnmower blades start to dull with the first cutting and the more you mow (either a larger area or more frequently), the more often you should sharpen your blades.  You certainly want to sharpen your mower blades if you hit a stump, root, rock or other solid object, we will inspect the blade for damage which can make them dangerous to use. 

At a minimum you should have the mower blades sharpened at the beginning of the season (April) and again in the middle of the season (August).  This is to match up with the two growing cylces of your lawn.  Your lawn grows well in the spring and fall but is typically slower growing or dormant during the hot weather of July or August. 

The impact of cutting with a dull lawnmower blade is frayed edges that brown and an uneven cut
Using a dull lawnmower blade causes the tips of your grass blades to be
shredded and turn brown, leaving your lawn less healthy and more vulnerable. 
A dull mower blade also will result in an uneven cutting of your lawn.


You want to make sure you are cutting the blades of grass cleanly with a sharp lawnmower blade as opposed to hacking at them with a dull mower blade.  Using a dull blade will rip or shred the blade, leave the tips burnt or brown, cause uneven cutting and make your lawn more vulnerable to disease, bugs and mold.  Using a sharp lawn mower blade will also leave your lawn looking much better than a dull mower blade.

One great idea about sharpening your lawnmower blades is to have two sets of blades for your mower.  You take the dull set off and install the sharp and balanced blades.  This way your lawnmower is ready to go all the time and you don't have to get dirty twice.


Why Does Balancing the Blade Matter?

Your lawn mower blade is spinning between 3500 and 4000 rpm.  That's roughly 60 revolutions per second.  Being out of balance will cause strain on the lawnmower blades shaft and can cause the shaft to break, which could be deadly to the user or those nearby.  Even if the shaft doesn't break, you may be causing substantial damage to your engine which can result in your needing to buy a new mower and are cutting your lawn in an uneven manner.  When we sharpen your lawnmower blade we ensure it is properly balanced.

The cost to sharpen a mower blade is $9.95
If you drop it off by 3pm, it will typically be ready after 3pm the next day.
