This is Phil’s favorite blade.
A Luxor blade hardly leaves his snath for most of the grass mowing season. We favor the 85cm length for the majority of our hay mowing, especially in the light grasses and forbes of our top hay meadow. We switch to shorter lengths later in the season when the weight, toughness or lay of the grass makes mowing with long blades harder work.
Phil uses the 75cm Luxor for most garden work (lawns, tracks, overgrown edges) and a 50cm Luxor for paths and trimming work. The shorter versions of this blade can be found here.
90cm Luxor blade, for the experienced mower looking for a long meadow blade
Slightly heavier then the Profisense Meadow blade, it is more forgiving of coarser mowing.The body of the blade is fairly flat, which some mowers prefer, so it needs a little more care with initial set up to get it mowing well. Once it is set up it mows like a dream and is a useful step up from the Profisense blade.
If used with care the 75cm blade (and shorter lengths) are capable of mowing young brambles and bracken. If you have large areas to tackle, or the brambles are more mature, one of these tougher blades might suit you better.
Preparing your new blade for mowing
All new blades should have the lacquer cleaned off the cutting edge to prevent it clogging the sharpening stone. See this post for further details.
