Has anyone used these blades? The site has great things to say about them but of course they want to sell them to you. I must say it appears to be a good idea. I think I have seem similar setups on the tractor mowers the state uses to mow roadsides.

I saw a couple of systems like that 30 - 40 years ago. It seemed to work good until it hit a few rocks then a blade would fly off. The big mowers where a chain is used work well. I would be quite careful about it. Good Luck, Rick

As far as function, I would bet they DO mow better.  They are like a discbine cutter head.  Our discbine only has 2 blades per head, BUT, they spin at a much faster speed than an average mower, so will have the same effect as 4 on the meg-mo.  Our New Holland 1411 discbine has short blades that look pretty much just like the meg-mo blades, and talk about being able to cut at fast speeds!  I can cut faster than safe to drive the tractor in a field.  What I would be concerned about is blade breakage.   We break several blades a season on our discbine, but it has a rubber apron to help stop a broken blade.  In a lawn mower, they could be dangerous for anyone within a long range even outside your own yard.

I got a set for my JD 317.  They work well and cut great.  I had gator blades on the mower before and I thought that they seemed to take a little bit more power to shred the clippings while cutting.  With the Meg Mo blades It seems I can go faster and still get a good cut in most conditions except for really tall grass, which just needs more time to get out of the chute.
