SOURCE: sharpen hedge trimmer blade??

My trick is to make sure that I always lube the blades after each session with a 3/4 engine oil + 1/4 kerosene mix - making sure that every tooth gets a drops or 2, then run it for a seconds to spread the oil & leave the blades overlapping. Doing this allows the blades to self sharpen I've found. 2 stroke oil , unmixed is about the perfect viscosity aswell.

Ihave a craftsman ridding mower model #917.289900 new belt for the deck new blads it still leaves miss cut in the middle anybody know why?

usually if its missing cut it's not rotating fast enough, or the other thing it can be the blades have not been sharpened. some companies that make blades don't sharpen them so they can be handled, it will have a leading edge and you need a sharpening stone to put a cutting edge on the blade. and the blade has to be put in the right way round. flate top cutting edge bottom.

proper method is to use what is referred to as a "lapping table" professional sharpening shops have these , look in your yellow pages for scissor sharpening , but if your a skilled hand and have some time then a simple fine file will work as well , keep same angles on cutting edges ,approx. 30 degree angle

Check your blades to see if they are balanced. They should sit level when you put them on an arbor, (something pointy that you can put in the hole in the blade that will not go all the way through the hole. If the blade is heavy on one side you can grind or file the heavy end of the blade (I sharpen the blades and the heavy side gets extra sharpening to remove the excess weight on that side). Also check the spindles that you bolt the blades to when you install the blades. make sure that there is no slop in the spindles... they must not wobble. If they wobble, you didn't keep them greased. You'll have to but new spindles... they're not hard to install.

I wish to know if I can purchase new blades for my hedge trimmer model number 900.799740 . Can I replace blade with 22 inch or longer size? Can original blade be sharpened? What new model is compatable?

Go to, this is sears website for parts. You should be able to find the part number for a new blade.
If the blade has bolts and nuts holding the blade together it can be sharpened. If it is riveted together, it can be but it is more work than what it is worth.

Can i buy a new blade or can it be sharpened? it won't cut very good.

New blades are sold at both Home Depot and Lowes, and probably also at Sears.

To sharpen the blade use a wetsone to buff off any burrs and then a metal file to just touch up the edge. It won't need much work at all.
