My operators manual doesn't tell me how to sharpen the knives on this unit. Does anyone know the best way to do this? I can hardly see them and I can't see how to take them out!!
Thanks in advance!

Looked, and it was for the plunger knives.
I'm asking about the knotter knives that cut after the knot is made?
Thanks!

Remove the two bolts holding the knotters down at the back and flip the knotters up for access to the twine knives. You can sharpen them in place, or pulling one cotter pin will allow the knife arm to be removed.

CAUTION... wear gloves and keep your pinkies out of harm's way when flipping up the knotters.

Well either I missed you saying the twine knifes or you didn't say that but either way as Bob says. There not real hard to sharpen and the manual also talks about that

Nice explaination! I appreciate it!
I did take out the cotter pin but couldn't work the arm out. Even tried cycling by hand for a better position. I will look at these two bolts.
Thanks again!

Yes, that did it! Those two bolts gave me the access to sharpen the blades.
Great Forum - lots of answered questions for sure!
