    Gonna try doubles this week on my JD walkbehind. Gonna try a gator on the top with a factory high lift on the bottom. Anybody else using a similar setup or other.

    I popped the doubles on and intentionally went to a property that I have been having to double cut this spring. The doubles chopped it up, no double cutting, just a few clumps to break up with the blower. I was amazed at the difference. The mower ran as normal, however it took a little longer to get the blades up to speed which is expected. I raised the deck 1/2 inch as suggested and thank everyone for enlightening me to double blades.
