This blade is suitable for the experienced mower to use on large lawns or for early hay making.
Or for taking part in scythe competitions!
When mowing lighter vegetation, such as lawns, early season hay crops or low fertility wildflower meadows, this blade will allow you to cut a given area more quickly.
This blade can be used in heavier grass, but it becomes harder work to move the blade through the grass and carry the weight of the cut grass as the crop gets heavier.
At some point most mowers find it is quicker to switch to a shorter blade that takes less effort to use. The exact point when you might want to switch will vary from mower to mower!
