06-07-2006, 07:03 PM
I need new blades for my 60" exmark ztr. What kind of blades should I buy? Standard, hi-lift, mulching, etc.
What deck? (TriVantage, UltraCut, or TRITON?)
What are you doing (mulching, side discharge, bagging?)

I don't know which deck I have. It is a 23 Hp Kohler. I am not bagging or mulching right now. I am just tired of double cutting.

Does that put a lot more stress on the pulleys?. If I had a 27 Hp motor I would think about doing that. The one I have is only 23 Hp Kohler

Did I read somthing wrong or did you say that you mount 2 blades where usually only 1 goes? Can this be done with all mowers? A 36" Ferris?

i myself run it on a exmark 60 inch lazer with a Lc 27 kawi for power,they have been on one day and they are the cats a$$.i would do a search on here to see if anyone has done it to a 36 ferris before trying it ,or call your local dealer.good luck
With the 23 Kohler you can forget about running doubles. Plus they're not for everyone.
I'd go to your eXmark dealer and ask for a set of OEM Excalibur blades. Aftermarket it's ususally hit of miss.
