      Holy crap man! those are some blades! Do they slow down the mower though? I ran the gator blades on my 60" exmark and the gator blades slowed it down a little.

          I run two blades on each spindle. I'd like to try these out but I need 18" blades.

          Edit - Oh, I see the tri-blades come in 18". Hmm. I may have to try a set. Interesting.

            impossible to keep balanced. A blade will suck down your power very quickly and cause vibration if you do not balance them.

              Wow, the quad blade! Very interesting. I'd be worried about balancing them too!

                Why would these blades be harder to balance than regular blades? I'm not getting it.

                  They would slow the blade speed down and also cause your mower to work harder to run them, burning more fuel.

                    Only if they are specifically heavier that the blade already on there. I run two blades per spindle now. It does slow down things a bit but I never have to double cut so it saves me time and gas in that respect. I think I will try the tri-blades to see how they work.

                      They should not slow the blade speed down, unless your motor is not strong enough and bogs. But from experience trying to balance a blade like that would be impossible. Hell it would almost be impossible to check it for balance. Besides they look to be universal blades that never fit perfect and would be out of balance the instant you put them on. I plan on looking at them while at GIE but I doubt I would sell them to a customer.

                        I think the big problem with balancing a blade that has 4 blades is that you are not just balancing the blade like a normal 2 sided mower blade. You are not only adding 2 more edges that need to be balanced but with those additional edges comes a lot more ways the blade can be off balance due to the different combinations.

                        Try taking two regular 2 edged mower blades and lay them on top of each other on a blade balancer in the shape of an X.

                        Next try to sharpen the different edges where both the blades then like parallel with the ground and show they are fully balanced.

                        I bet it takes a lot more time.

                        Why doesn't someone here contact that company and see if they can get a few blades to try out and review the product on the forum.

                        Who knows, they might send you a couple.

                              That's how I'm running my mower now. The clippings are much smaller and it clumps less even in wet weather.

                              I bet it takes a lot more time. ...
                              Only because there are more surfaces to sharpen. It's still just about making it equal and opposite. Grind on the heavy side.
