Specifications
  • Size: 21-Inch Blade
Description:
This is an authentic replacement part manufactured for use with Craftsman walk-behind lawnmowers. The blade is angled to allow the clippings to rotate through the cutting deck to produce fine clippings for side discharge and mulching. Lawnmower blades wear out over time and can cause the grass blades to tear making frayed endings that can diminish the look of the lawn. A new mower blade will allow for a cleaner cut keeping the lawn looking good. This blade is sold as an individual replacement part.

I am replacing the blade on my mower how do I know I install correct its easy to install upside down
Jim for model number 23agamp793 asked on 2022-08-21
Hello Jim, thank you for your question. If on the right side, move the blade in a counterclockwise direction, and if on the left side, move it in a clockwise direction.) When doing this, this sharp edge of the blade should be the edge that leads. If it does, then you have the correct lawn mower blade position. If not, you need to flip it over. If you need help placing an order, customer service is open 7 days a week. Please feel free to give us a call. We look forward to hearing from you.
