So, are lawn mower blades universal? Lawnmower blades are not universal, they are mower specific. A mower blade must be an exact fit and torqued to the manufacturer`s specification.
The blade length should be measured diagonally from the opposite tip on each side. A blade that is too long will not fit under the deck while a blade that is too short will leave grass uncut.
It`s important that the blade`s cutting edge follows the direction of rotation. The wings of the lawn mower blade will be oriented up toward the mower deck, and any writing on the blade will likely be facing away from the deck. If the blade bolt comes with a washer, its concave side will be facing the blade.
