A perfectly manicured lawn is the pinnacle of homeowner pride, but youve got to have the right lawn mower first. When it comes to picking out the best mower for your yard, the choices can seem endless and overwhelming: electric versus gas, push versus self-propelled, and how about all those extra attachments?
While Reviewed has tested a variety of lawn care tools, we have yet to specifically test lawn mowers. But you can ensure youre getting a great one by shopping at the right place. After all, where you buy matters when youre looking at the selection, pricing, customer experience, knowledgeable employees, and convenience. Whatever your top priorities are, weve researched the best places to buy lawn mowers, and below are our top picks.
When’s The Right Time To Replace Them
A good rule of thumb for the average homeowner is to replace your mower blades annually. You may also think about replacing them if they become damaged. Dig up that product manual if you want a more clear-cut answer.
Always make sure to take protective measures whenever sharpening your mower blades at home. Wear gloves and eye protection and disconnect the spark plugs.
Buy New Lawn Mower Blades Or Sharpen Old Ones
After mowing a lawn for a while, you have a pretty good idea of where all the stumps and roots are. That being so, I still find myself grinding down a small tree stump every few months. Even if you’re easy on blades, they still wear down and need to be replaced or sharpened regularly.
Why does it matter?
Dull mower blades shred grass, leaving frayed ends or even failing to cut it. This makes your lawn uneven, white or brown at the tip, and susceptible to disease.

About Mower Replacement Blades
Gas and electric push lawn mowers can go the distance when given the proper maintenance, but when your mower blades are damaged, chipped or dull, they can cause damage to your lawn mower and create irregular cuts across your beautiful lawn. Dull mower blades shred grass instead of cutting it, leaving your lawn jagged and vulnerable to disease and discoloration.
If you feel like your lawn mower isn’t performing to its full potential, you can usually find a way to repair it rather than trading it in for a new one. If you notice that the cuts your lawn mower makes are less precise lately and suspect that the blades may need sharpening, learn how to sharpen lawn mower blades with our helpful tips and tricks. We take you through the steps to remove your lawn mower attachments and sharpen the blade with a bench grinder or a rotary sharpening tool. If you can’t do it yourself, many of our locations offer blade sharpening services. Check your local Ace store before buying a lawn mower replacement blade to see if sharpening is a better option.
Of course, you can only sharpen mower blades so much before they wear thin and require replacement, which is why we carry a wide selection of lawn mower blades to fit any size mower, from the smallest, cordless electric to the largest, gas riding mower. Browse our selection of lawn mower replacement blades by brand or model compatibility, or shop for universal sizes to find the best fit for your mower.

How To Sharpen Mower Blades
Can’t remember where you put your manual? Cleaning up the edge with a grinding wheel or file will generally do the trick. It doesn’t take much, so don’t go too overboard with the grinder. After sharpening, make sure the blades are balanced and you’re ready to put them back on.
To make the process even easier, we recommend keeping an extra set of blades around. If one set is dull, put the new blades on and you can sharpen the dull set one rainy afternoon. You will also avoid getting stuck without a set if the blades have reached the end of their life.
