Blades

If the first blade cutting the second is carrying the load of the first and the third is carrying the load of the other two why arent there 3 different blades? more designed for their application. just a late night thought

A lot of guys here do indeed mix their blades underneath the deck.

I've often wondered why someone hasn't come up with a setup where the left side blade is the largest, the center blade slightly smaller, the discharge side blade even smaller so it has more of a "pulling" gear to it to discharge all those clippings easier.

Did that make any sense?

Maybe a high lift on the left side coupled with another high lift in middle with a gator on the right?

I've been trying to find time to hook a chipper up to my Walker discharge blower. This would cut the clippings ultra fine and spread them across the cutting width. This to me makes more sense than trying to cut them multiple times under the deck.

No, I'm saying they DO use a different style of blade on one or more spindles.

Ok see so they put the second blade where the third should have been and the third where the first goes and the first where the second was, ok so then this confuses the grass as it flows from blade to blade it can't think about which blade was carrying it anymore so it shoots out the chute faster LOL !

p.s.: also a late night thought
