Some of reviews:
Great machine with a couple of suggestions
“The Oregon 88-023 does an absolutely beautiful job of grinding blades effortlessly. Should have purchased one years ago. I highly recommend it. However, WHY did they not include a second Table Plate? The cost would have been negligible. When switching from left-handed to a right-handed blade one must detach this plate and move it to the other side of the grinder. Also, braces on the hood as in similar models, would be nice, as it tends to vibrate/oscillate during operation.”
“As a landscaper, I sharpen my blades every couple of days. This grinder simplifies the process greatly and gives me a steady edge. Smaller grinders and hand grinders have a tendency to wander and over heat the metal. The width and size of this wheel makes accurate sharpening a breeze.”
I’ve used this grinder now for numerous blade sharpening on three riding lawn mowers and I can’t begin to say how much time and effort this machine has saved me, not to mention higher quality sharpening. I bought the one with a crank height adjustment for easer and more precise control and it works great. The reverse switch allows me to sharpen both right and left hand blades like on one of my decks where each blade is a mirror image of the other because they are counter rotating blades When they say heavy duty they mean it this machine should last for generations.
This models came with:
- Adjustable light included
- Easy to turn rotary adjusting handle and knobs to make height adjustment fast and simple
- On/Off safety switch
- Reversing switch allows grinding of left- and right-hand cut blades
- Grit collector model number 88-037 sold separately keeps the mess contained and out of the work area
