Don’t Mulch. Just Bag!

Posted on: October 18th, 2017 by usmb No Comments

leaves_aWith fall fast approaching, homeowners and lawn care professionals have two choices when it comes to dealing with leaves: mulch or bag. Mulching is an easy, economical choice but sometimes it is best to bag and remove the fallen leaves, especially when battling tree-borne diseases.


Tar spot fungus is a common tree-born disease that afflicts most maple trees (the exception being Japanese maples). Tar spot appears are large black dots on the maple leaves. The fungus will only affect the leaves of the tree, leaving the rest of the tree unharmed.The black spots are unsightly but will do little other damage. The fungus spreads through the air by spores that come off the fallen leaves. To stop the spread of Tar Spot, it is best to collect and remove all fallen leaves from the area. Leaves should be burned or removed completely. The fungus can survive the winter and will return in the spring in infected leaves are left on the ground, this includes mulched leaves.


The tar spot fungus has been wide-spread this in Northwest Ohio this year – where USA Mower Blades are manufactured. A unseasonable wet spring is the likely culprit. For home owners or lawn care professionals dealing with an infestation, the best defense is to simply pick up the leaves and transport them off site for destruction. USA Mower Blades with medium, high, or extra high lift are ideal for bagging leaves and grass clippings. Eagle Series Blades from USA Mower Blades are 3-in-1 blades that can also be used for bagging.


The Eagle Series Blades from USA Mower Blades are ideal for fall leaf clean up. Eagle Series Blades are high-quality toothed commercial lawn mower blades designed specifically for longevity and durability. These 3-in-1 toothed blades can bag, side-discharge, or mulch grass clippings with a higher efficiency than standard, non-toothed blades. Toothed blades, while not always true mulching blades, are better for mulching than standard high-lift blades. The blade teeth do not have a cutting edge but are used to create extra lift, propelling clippings high into the mower deck. When the grass clippings and leaves fall back down, they are cut again before being lifted back into the deck or falling onto the lawn. Eagle Series Blades are available for many of the most popular commercial mowers on the market. 


If tar spot fungus is not an issue, consider mulching the leaves. The shredded leaves will decompose over the winter and provide a quick nutritional boost for the grass in the spring. For more information on mulching leaves, click here.

Dump the Dull Blades

Grass Blade Infor Graphic

Dull lawn mower blades can affect not only the look of the lawn but also the health of the grass. Dull lawn mower blades do not cleanly cut the blades of grass. Instead, the grass is ripped or torn, resulting in a jagged edge. This jagged edged will brown within days, causing an uneven look to a recently cut lawn. The jagged edges also present an easy way for disease and parasites to enter the grass. 


The dull edge of the lawn mower blade will pull at the grass, tearing the individual blades rather than cutting through them. This results in a longer mowing time and more strain on the lawn mower. The grass will momentarily wrap itself around a dull blade before it rips or tears. This causes unnecessary strain on the lawn mower and can result in a shortened operating life or damage to the mower components.


After mowing, take a close look at the cut blades of grass. If the tips of the blades are jagged or torn, it is time to either sharpen the blades or purchase new ones. Blades should be inspected and sharpened after 10 hours of mowing.


Grass that is cut with sharp blades can recover quickly and is more likely to resist disease and pests. Grass cut with sharp blades will also result in a beautiful looking lawn. The cleanly cut blade of grass will hardly yellow or discolor and the plant is able to heal quickly and continue growing.


Mowing the grass is just like pruning a tree or bush. Use the right equipment in the proper way and the plant will continue to thrive and grow. Using equipment that has not been maintained is an easy way to invite disease and pests that will ruin the look, and the health, of even the most well-maintained lawn.

Finding the Right Mower Blade

Posted on: January 20th, 2017 by usmb No Comments

Finding the right mower blade can be challenging. The problem with purchasing replacement lawn mower blades online is they all look the same. Not being able to pick up the new blade and compare it the old blade can be frustrating. That’s why USA Mower Blade is trying to take the guess work out of buying replacement blades. Need a new blade? Or three? Start here:


Original Equipment Manufacturer Number. The easiest way to find replacement lawn mower blades is with the OEM number. The OEM number is the numerical part number of the blade assigned by the manufacturer. In most cases, just typing this number with the manufacturer name into a search engine or online store will be enough to bring up some promising results. Don’t have the OEM number? Not to worry, it is easy to find. Check the manual that came with the mower.


Model Name and/or Number. Don’t have the OEM number or a manual? Manuals for most newer mowers can be found on the manufacturer’s website. Searching for the mower manufacturer and model number is an easy way to find the needed information.


Length and Center Hole. Without an OEM number, manufacturer name, or model number, it can be difficult, but not impossible, to find the right replacement lawn mower blade. There are two blade characteristics to look at: blade length and center hole design.


LAWN4The blade length should be measured diagonally from the opposite tip on each side. A blade that is too long will not fit under the deck while a blade that is too short will leave grass uncut. Finding the right blade length is very important.


The center hole is how the blade attaches to the spindle assembly under the mowing deck. There are several different types of center hole designs, including circle in various sizes, rounded rectangle, H-pattern, Y-pattern, and 5-point, 6-point, or 7-point star pattern. With the exact blade length and the correct center-hole pattern or size, it will be easy to identify the correct replacement lawn mower blade.
