Jacobsen, a Textron Company has designed a new bedknife for its magnetic bedbar system that is thin, strong and disposable. The MagRazor is attached with magnets, no screws. Installation and removal take seconds. The MagRazor provides a sharp edge that's ready to cut as soon as it's removed from its box, eliminating grinding. The magnetic technology allows technicians to change bedknives on-site rather than bringing the equipment back to the shop. With both the original MagKnife and the new MagRazor, foreign objects such as broken tees, sticks, small pebbles and coins, passed cleanly between the cutting blades and the bedknife without damage. The system fits all of Jacobsen reel mowers such as the E-Walk, TC22, G-Plex, E-Plex, LF 1880 and LF3400.
