Unlike other blade sharpeners, this sharpening kit has no sharp edges and is less likely to cause a painful accident. It also installs in less than 5 minutes and doesn't take up much space in storage. The kit includes 2 parts - a railed backstop and three self-adhesive abrasive pads. The backstop fits onto the bottom of the mower and holds the abrasive pad in contact with the mower blades.

The backstop attaches with a pair of screw clamps, and then all you have to do is push the mower around to sharpen the blades. As they brush against the abrasive strip, any rust, dings, burls, or dings will scrub away. You'll experience slightly more resistance than normal, but the blades will shape right up after just a few revolutions.

The abrasive pads are made with aluminum oxide, and each pad can be used several times before it needs replacing. They work just like a sheet of extra fine sandpaper, except that they can hold up to the stress and deliver a smooth, even finish to the edge of your blades.

A clean edge is important because it will result in smoother mowing action. Sharp blades are less likely to catch on the grass, so they produce a smoother and healthier lawn. Mowers with sharp blades are easier to push, gentler on sore joints, and make less noise.

This sharpening kit can be used with a variety of mowers, including push reel mowers, gas lawnmowers, and electric lawnmowers. Before using it, check the owner's manual for your mower and follow all of the safety precautions.



What our customers are saying:

Arriving the second day after ordered, the Scotts Classic Reel Mower Blade Sharpening Kit was lighter and less bulky than I expected, even though I watched the demonstration video. I applied an adhesive strip and pressed it firmly everywhere until the adhesive held all of the strip to the slight angle along the length of the backstop. Attaching it was as simple as in the video. I think of the reel as the rotating blades, and the stationary, adjustable blade as the bedknife. I had backed off all adjusting screws more than necessary, then tightened each rear screw to create a slight drag to rotation of the reel. Wow, the reel's edges began to sparkle in the sunlight as I walked the mower up and down the driveway! After loosening the rear screws to remove the sharpener, I learned that, for me, tightening the right side rear screw first brings the bedknife into contact with the reel, and holding a strip of newspaper in the gap toward the left side allows me to judge how far! to tighten the other side. Then it's a matter of tightening the forward screws into firm contact, and then fine-tuning each side until the bedknife barely resists rotation of the reel, but newspaper strips magically separate no matter where they are positioned along the bedknife. Wear a glove to rotate the reel to and fro by hand as I do--just keep fingers and thumbs out of the bedknife.

I used more words than necessary, but believe me, this process is simpler, cleaner, quicker and truer than applying abrasive paste and forever cranking the reel backward to make that 'magic' happen. -Gary.

This device seems overpriced due to the weak plastic clamps and screws. Good thing I watched the video for using the device because I did not find the written instructions to be very clear. When putting the device on the mower for the first time I broke the head off of one of the plastic screws when I tightened it. That left me with only one clamp to hold the device on. Fortunately it still worked. I tested the lawn mower afterwards and device does work, the blades were sharpened. Still I think this is overpriced. It would be more durable if the clamps and screws were both metal.

This product works great. I was able to sharpen the blades on my Scott’s Classic reel mower quickly and with little effort. The written instructions that came in the box were not specifically designed for the Scott’s reel mower but I watched the YouTube video on this page and followed the instructions there. After I sharpened the blades I gave them a light coating of WD-40 to help keep them from getting rusty.
