First, I will inspect the mower blade for any damage including cracked blades, chips in the edges, and the condition of the bevels. If there is damage beyond repair, I will notify the customer. Second, I will properly clean the blade removing yard debris which is essential when later balancing the blade. Third, I will sharpen the blade to match the factory bevel to ensure that the blade cuts like new when they are returned to the customer.
The answer is an absolute YES. A balanced lawnmower blade is as important as a sharp one. Consider this, the vibration caused by an out-of-balance rotating blade potentially will greatly damage the bearing blocks or crank shaft of the lawnmower. The vibration will further diminish the peak horsepower and performance; which will in turn reduce forward cutting speed and will be absorbed by the operator.
Consistent accurate balance measurements can be achieved at the “center-of-rotation” which is the center of the lawnmower blade’s mounting hole. Placing a mower blade on a nail affixed to a wall is measuring at the top of the hole instead of the center of said hole
While using a plastic table-top-stepped-cone is an attempt to improve the balance consistency over the nail-in-the-wall method, it is inaccurate as the steps never locate the center of the hole
In most cases your blades will be completed with next day service.
For most motorized lawn mowers I would recommend sharpening and balancing your blades every 20-25 hours of operation. Depending on the blade quality, most blades last 100-200 hours which equates to sharpening 5-8 times on your initial investment. Your blades will be cleaned, sharpened to a factory bevel, and balanced to avoid premature wear and tear on your lawn mower and a superior cut on your turf. And if you have ever tried to cut with a blade out of balance, you would know very quickly by the vibration you experience.
