At 90 cm, this is the longest blade we offer. It is a blade for serious grass mowing. If you intend to regularly harvest a good sized paddock of hay or grain, this blade might be just what you are after. It is heavier to use than our other blades – not because of the blade itself, but because of the sheer weight of grass you cut and transport with one sweep. If you want to get into competition mowing, you’ll be looking for a long blade like this. Competition mowing is a sport that is starting to take off in Europe.
The Schroeckenfux grass scythe blades that we sell are well suited to the high silicon content of the Australian native grasses as well as the softer imported grasses. We have asked for a stone tip to be added to all of our grass blades so that when scything properly, i.e. in an arc with the blade slicing through the grass, if your grass is hiding a rock, a bit of wire or a star picket, you’ll hit the obstacle with the stone tip and thus better protect your blade.
