/ Bush Hog blades not swinging freely #11
Change every year in spring. Pull dull blades off, put the sharp blades on. Sharpen dull blades and replace again next season. Some of the area I bush hog is quite rocky and dings blades up considerably.I'm just curious why you change blades so much on a bush hog? I suppose you sharpen them too?
correct blades and bolts. grass cutting mostly, occasional 1" sapling. part of the property is bordered by woods so some deadfall limbs maybe 2 inches. any bigger and I move limb before running over it. After sharpening I flatten cutting edge to a 1/16 or thicker. Same as I have done for yearsAre they the correct blades and bolts.?
No worries sharpening blades if your just cutting pastures and grass/weeds. Only need to be concerned if you clearing tree saplings.
I always get a little grass and debris that may make the blades hard to move by hand.....but never an issue for the centrifugal force of the hog spinning at speed.
