You only look as sharp as your blade

American-made using U.S. steel alloy, each John Deere rotary mower blade is manufactured for superiority, engineered for excellence, and designed to stay sharper, longer.* This translates to less blade replacements and more high-quality cuts.

A smart investment

We've invested in engineering a durable mower blade using an edge-rolled design. When an edge isn't rolled, it is more susceptible to burrs and sharp corners. These imperfections reduce the life of your blade and result in more blade replacements that can ultimately increase your operating costs. Plus, edge-rolling produces a sharper cutting surface from the start, so you'll get a high-quality cut every time. Investing in John Deere blades now means less of an investment in replacement blades in the future.

 

The images below compare our edge-rolled blade to a blade with no edge-rolling:

Less sharpenings, more savings

Not only does our edge-roll design produce a more durable blade, it helps to evenly distribute stress over the surface. This produces a blade that consistently retains its sharpness after grindings, which translates to less sharpenings. And the less blade sharpenings you have to make, the more time and money you save.

 

We also work to extend the life of our blades through our manufacturing process. Each blade undergoes a proprietary heat treatment that provides the ideal carbon levels needed to produce a blade with excellent wear resistance and fatigue life. And getting the right amount of carbon matters – too much means a weaker blade, too little and the blade wears out quickly, resulting in more blade replacements for you.

An intelligent design

It only makes sense that John Deere rotary mower blades fit perfectly on your John Deere equipment. We accomplish this by designing each blade to the exact specifications of the individual mower deck. This helps achieve the best possible performance and supreme cut quality.

 

Another design element that sets our blades apart from the competition - our top-stamped center hole. A top-stamped mounting hole allows the blade to fit tightly against the spindle, which results in numerous benefits, including:

  • Reduced knocking
  • Reduced blade vibration and wear on equipment, which helps extend the life of other mower parts
  • Eliminates uncut strips of grass for a better, cleaner appearance, and provides a smoother mowing experience
