    Can't beat this

    My first job out of high school back in the late 70s was an equipment rental center, where I sharpened more lawnmower blades than I could count. The company I worked for had one of these, but I couldn't remember the name. When I went to Amazon looking for one, I searched for "magnetic lawnmower blade balancer" and they had several cheap imitations. Sure glad one of the reviews said "skip the cheap imitation, get the Magna Matic Mag 1000". Aha! THAT was the name of it. Mine just arrived, and it works every bit as good as I remember from all those years ago. Sure glad I found you and didn't have to settle for the cheap imitations on Amazon. If you have a nice mower and want to take care of it, the Mag-1000 is worth every penny!

    Good product … medium shipping

    When i receive my package i was just only in a open bag ,loose in the box for the future i suggest to have 2 fit piece of foam for having non risk of moving in the box except that your product are really tough and precise build FROM MAGNA-MATIC: I am concerned your balancer was opened in transit. I noticed you are in Canada, my guess is Canadian customs opened the box and re-packed it. I have had this happen in the past so that is the most likely cause. ALL of our balancers are in a custom box, that has a die-cut cardboard insert that locates on the cone and holds the balancer in-place so it cannot move at all during shipment. You can see how the packaging is here: https://youtu.be/DSVC9dvzu-E

    Mag-1000 Review

    A very high quality item. The attention to detail and precision machining is uniquely rare. Also, the price is minimal for such attention to detail. I worked in a precision shop and am aware of what it takes to manufacture close toleranced items. Couldn't be more satisfied and appreciative. Michael

    Best instrument on the market today

Description

The MAG-1000 is the "standard in the industry" blade balancer. It has been trusted for over 60 years to provide the least cost / highest accuracy balance reading. The MAG-1000 was originated by MAGNA-MATIC in 1958, and has been the standard balancing instrument in the Outdoor Power Equipment Industry.

In the 1950's after the introductions of the rotary lawn mower to the home owner, most engine makers experienced heavy warranty work. This was because the engines did not last through the warranty period. It was quickly determined that the unbalanced blade was the cause. Balancing is a necessary part of servicing the blade. At that time most of the blades acted as the flywheel of the engine, this is still true for most walk-behind mowers today. The commercial mowers with multiple blade decks new rely on the bearing blocks. Consider that a tire on an automobile rotates at about 1000 RPM at 60 m.p.h., there is no question that your tires need to be balanced. Now consider a blade that rotates at 3000 RPM. You can now understand that seriously important to balance the blades on your mower. The vibration caused by an out-of-balance part in rotation at that speed will greatly damage the bearing blocks or crank shaft of a lawn mower. Vibration robs the mower of horse power, which will in turn reduce forward cutting speed and other aspects of the mower's performance including fuel efficiency.
