6 vs 10 Bladed Cutting Cylinders For The Homeowner
We’re going to take a closer look at the difference between 6 and 10 bladed cutting cylinders to help you determine which blade might be best for you and your requirements.
The Perfect Cylinder For You.
When it comes to picking the perfect cutting cylinder for your lawn there are a few points that you may need to consider before determining whether a 6 or 10 bladed cylinder is best for your lawn. These can include things like how much grass you’re going to be cutting and how frequently you plan to cut your lawn. If you, like many other people, are still more familiar with rotary lawnmowers over cylinder mowers there’s a very simple way to explain it. So to put it simply, compared to how one might explain how a rotary mower would cut your lawn like a machete, a cylinder mower cuts your lawn like that of a pair of scissors.

Differences Between 6 vs 10 Bladed Cutting Cylinders?
5 to 6 bladed cylinders are what is most commonly found on cylinder mowers and are designed for general mowing between 20mm and 30mm. The number of blades on the cylinder along with the diameter of the cylinder greatly affect the overall mowing height possible. The more separated the blades are, the better a cylinder will mow taller grass. However, the more blades present the more the mower loses the ability to mow taller grass, because there is less space between individual blades. So for those who mow their lawn more frequently, and prefer low cut finishes below 20mm, a 10 bladed cylinder would be ideal. So let’s take a closer look at our 6 and 10 bladed cutting cylinders from Allett.
