I got a new cutting head for my Stilh line cutter (weed whip). It has
three plastic blades instead of the plastic line and works great. The
kid down the street has been doing some yard work for us and he used
it to cut high weeds and small saplings in an area we want cleared. I
think the saplings might have been a bit much as the blades looked
fairly worn when he was done.
Having purchased replacement blades, I got them out and noticed on the
package that they suggest storing the blades in water for longer life.
Does anyone do this? Does it make a noticable difference? I figure the
Stihl people wouldn't print it on the package in a dozen different
languages as a joke, but it still sounds weird.
I googled the subject but only got the suggestion that storing in
water is recommended. Nothing on the chemical or physical reactions
that occur or are prevented from occuring in the water storage. I was
curious to see if anyone on this group had run across this and had an
opinion. Frequently, when you pose a question here, you get a dozen
people giving their views and experiences with the subject. Maybe when
everyone gets done with the holiday barbeque we'll get some opinions.
