Machine-grinding cutting cylinders and bottom blades, to improve cylinder mower performance, is both expensive and time consuming - furthermore every time the cylinder is ground, its life expectancy is greatly reduced.
In all reality, unless the cylinder is seriously damaged, there is actually no need to regrind it. With older cylinder mowers, preserving the cutting cylinder and bottom blade where they cannot be easily replaced is crucial.
The Old Lawnmower Company Blade Sharpening Kit sharpens the cutting surfaces using lapping paste - a very efficient method of sharpening, giving excellent results and extending the life of the mower’s cutting cylinder and bottom blade, whilst not compromising on performance.
Ransomes, the oldest lawnmower manufacturers in the world, still recommend this method for sharpening the cylinders on their top-class mowers.
