Toro Conversion

Does anybody know if toro or any aftermarket company sells a conversion kit that will allow me to make my 32 inch toro w/b go from 1 blade to the 2 blade setup like exmark. I did a search on toro's site and google and didnt find anything.

Is the deck level?
Were the blades sharp?
Was the engine running?
Is the entire mower level?
Were the blades engaged?
Did the grass need to be cut?
Was there gasoline in the tank?
Did you pull the mower off the trailer?
Was the mower set upon the actual turf?
Are the tires even on air pressure all around?

I sharpened the blades and it was like magic. I didnt have the major problem that i was having before. I bought the machine at the end of may so I was basically going a month without sharpening. I will be sharpening the blades once a week now. And just on certain yards I will have to double cut. I was going to get the bag but ist 600+ so its not worth it. I wanted the 2 blades because I thought it would help lessen the payload on one long as blade.

I will proab get a gator blade just to try it to see how it does compared to the oem because I will basically only mulch with this machine, I cant see discharging a residential account.
