[QUOTE=Realslowww;4552113]One thing you can do is put smaller pullies on the blade spindles to speed them up, a 72 all things given are equal will have a faster tip speed over a 60.]

It would be a bad idea to create more blade tip speed by making the pulleys smaller, as you will get less torque to the blade & I have already loaded the blades up with thick grass to the point the engine bogged. This is with mulching kit and going very slow, obviously i needed to come up higher on deck which I did at that point. However In my experience I wouldnt be taking away any power from the blades, need that power there for all different conditions/situations in contract mowing.
