Wow - ok - I just picked up (today) on the fact that they even exist.

I certainly will do a search.

Thanks,

you will find many people like them many do not. You have to try them I have them and love them. easy to sharpen cut through anything. Great in the fall turns leaves in to dust. getting second set for my ztr with the peco bag system and these blades should make spring any easy time for once. But Im sure after this post this topic will get pounded. all I can say is talk to the meg mo people there great to work with. saw him at the louisville show a couple of years ago, good guy.

some people love them, some people hate them. they are kind of like gators, walkers and everything else. it either serves it's purpose for you, or you hate them.

Just use double blades. I saw a thread on here ones and some guy did a comparison. I think he found that double blades do the same job as Meg Mos if not better.

Double blades wear parts out quicker. It puts alot more stress on

1. Engine
2. Belts
3. Spindles
4. Blade clutch which is not designed to spin that kind of load

It works ok but no way would I ever do it.

If you would never do it, what makes you an authority on it?

I have tried megmos, and have run doubles a LOT. Doubles have not created ONE problem on the 4 mowers I've run them on. And they work WAAAAY better than megmos.

I know at least 10 other companies in this area and a few of them have tried it and they all said it caused more trouble than it was worth. Everything from bogging engines down to blowing blade belts but mostly burning up blade clutches. I dont have any issues with single blades in all conditions so there is no need for me to try doubles. My machines cut great as they are.

I have run doubles about a third or half the time, I've used them on 4 machines since 2001. I've never had ANY problem. Yeah, singles often work fine for me too.

Eric ELM and doubles, however, are the reason Lawnsite got popular. And they DO work sooooo much better than megmos.

Well maybe I will give them a shot for a couple days this year. I can see where they may work good under certain conditions.

Your right it does put a lot of strain on parts. I'm lucky, because my mower has 2000 hours on it and the spindles are fine still. As far as the clutch, I engage it at a low RPM, then rev the engine up.

I would think the Meg Mos put the same strain on the mower.

Just don't engage the blades at full rpms, you shouldn't do that anyway. You'll see striping will improve, among other things. But I don't use em that often.

On the 17 th we are going to be in Lake Forest Illinois to show the MEG MO blades and the flex deck to some cemeteries. If any one wants to come and take a look call or E mail and we will try to set something up.
