New Blade for Echo SRM-230 Trimmer

My original toothed blade for my trimmer was just not "cutting" it any longer. I don't think they recommend sharpening these, so I stopped by the dealer for a new one.

While there, I looked at this new Arbor blade with ground chainsaw like teeth that can be sharpened with a round file in a chainsaw handle with gauge. I tried to take a picture of the teeth, but the iPhone camera insisted in focusing on the hub and my hand rather than the teeth. I haven't used it yet, but will as soon as the snow melts a little more.

Am I shocked that MTF took three picture I took within seconds of each other with the same hands, same camera, same light - and presented them in a random orientation.

Re: New Blade for Echo SRM-230 Trimmer

Clearly not a high interest topic, but to close it out, I put about 2 hours on this blade yesterday, and it was awesome compared to my old sawtooth blade. I trialed it on a couple different types and sizes of brush, then tackled a large tangle of wild wisteria that confounds all my efforts, and I now have a wide swath through the patch for pulling trailers and logs. i am very impressed, as well I should be these things are expensive. I avoided all under lying rocks, so I shouldn't need to sharpen it yet.

And, finally this might be a better picture of the chainsaw style cutters on this blade:

Looks pretty aggressive. I think we have a 4 blade style that leaves a lot to be desired. I suppose that blade would work nicely on Blackberries.
