Mower Blades With Quick-Change Cutting Tips
“For years I have been working to design a standard mower blade with quick-change metal cutting tips but I was never satisfied with the performance, and they didn’t pass safety tests,” says Richard Kuhns, Kemco Mfg. LLC. “After seeing a hay mower at a farm show in 2015, I began to think that if rotary mower blade tips could cut hay they could surely cut grass, too.”

    That was the germ of the idea that led Kuhns to develop his new “tool-less” removable cutting tips. “We designed our cutting blades with a lift on the back of the tip to discharge grass (hay mower blades do not have a lift for discharge) and a quick-change mounting system that’s unlike anything on the market. We have a patent pending on this unique design.”

    Kuhns says his Cutlass mower blades minimize mower downtime because blade tips slip on and off quickly for sharpening or replacement thanks to spring clip hold-downs. The tips are held on by centrifugal force when moving.

    “Having 4 cutting edges instead of two on each blade means you’ll have better mowing performance – even in wet grass – and better discharge than standard blades. The design allows the blade tips to swing back into the blade so they can bounce back if they hit something solid,” says Kuhns.

    When one of the blade tips gets dull, just pivot the blade tip clockwise and push straight in to remove it and sharpen or quickly replace it with a new one. No tools required. The blade body is made from high-grade steel and the tips are heat-treated and hardened for longer life.

    Cutlass Mower Blades are custom-made to fit most brands of mowers on the market like Ariens, Bobcat, Cub Cadet, Exmark, Grasshopper, Husqvarna, Hustler, Deere, Kubota, MTD, Scag, Simplicity, Snapper, Toro and more.

    “They will fit mowers from small walk-behinds to riding and zero-turn mowers up to 72 in. wide,” says Kuhns.

    Single blades with 4 cutting tips range in price from $73.50 for a 14-in. dia. blade to $136.50 for a 26-in. blade. There are sizes to fit in place of any size regular blades.
