    I would think that would take alot of power away from a machine that has just enough, REALSLOW, I'm on to you. You like starting trouble and sitting back and laughing about it. All in fun buddy. I'm sure someone will post saying they do.

    I agree with you. Doubles robs power, adds more stress to the spindle bearings, belt, and most importantly the blade clutch.

    It will fry the electric clutch...the only reason why Dixies do it is because they have a manual blade engagment

    Over 700hours on my Hustler super WB 48". Cuts great, runs great, clutch. belts and spindles are fine. Of course my mower doesn't have the new deck design. It's got the enlarged opening, more blade overlap and anti blowout airflow baffles. I run gators over standard or high lift blades or I run double standard blades. I might try meg-mows next.
