How to sharpen a grass blade on your brushcutter

For your brushcutter to work optimally, make sure that the grass blade is sharp.

WARNING: Before sharpening the grass blade, stop the product. If your brushcutter is battery-powered, take out the battery.

For this you will need:

  • Protective gloves—always use these when handling cutting equipment
  • Single-cut flat file

Follow these steps to sharpen a grass blade on your brushcutter:

  1. Check each blade.
  2. Use the file to sharpen the blade in a straight movement.
  3. Turn the blade regularly.
  4. Sharpen all edges equally to keep the balance.

WARNING: Always discard a blade that is damaged. Do not try to make a bent or twisted blade straight to use it again.
