Doubles on 21

Anyone run double blades on a 21? i was thinking a guy could use a single 21" highlift blade and add like a 16" gator blade with the same hole size. This might help cut up some clippings when side discharghing or even mulching. Let me know if you have done or tried this? i would think this would give a nice cut with the high lift and leave small pieces with the teeth on the gator blade?

Anyone? Beuller?

Sounds like the Honda QuadraCut system. Never tried it though.

I haven't tried Gator Blades but I have a MicroCut and Snapper Ninja. I prefer the Snapper for mulching, bagging and side discharge.

Forgive the image, but this is what I was thinking. What do you guys think, effective or a waste?

A standard high lift blade for a 21" mower with a smaller gator blade, same size center hole, but shorter lenght, 16" or so. i thought the smaller blade might shred clippings, but be lighter (less engine stress), while the high lift sucks the grass up for a nice cut. what you think.... did I blow your mind?

I think that you will need alot more power than any 21 can handle I have a Snapper 21 with 6 hp Kawi and it struggles in thick gras sometimes.

Some of the Honda 21"s have double-blade systems as their standard, when I started out I bought two POSs, HRT or HRC (I forget) 216s, and they both came with the double-blade systems. Would not recommend the mowers at all, but I believe they left a good cut.

Power, doubt you will have power enough unless it came with them from the factory like Honda and the Snapper Ninga blades.
