    is there any company like say Stens that makes blades for the JD 7 iron decks... I dont see any at J thomas, or any other catalogs I have.... I dont think I can do double blades cause the blades sit in a bushing first then the bolt goes throgh that ... would need the second blade to have a smaller hole ?? Any idea s on that ??? I guess what i need are some hi lift gators, and some super hi lift regular blades ..... Where could I find these ????? or can I ?? thanks

    I run doubles on my 737 with the JD mulch kit. Yes the 2nd blade is a smaller hole size. I run a thin highlift Bobcat blade as the double. The 2nd blade does make a noticeable difference in the quality of cut.

    They run an offset blade, right? ___/-------\___ Like that? Then, for doubles, you need a second blade with a center hole that is the diameter of the blade bolt (usually 5/8" but better check). Put your reg OEM blade on first around the nub on the spindle, then add your standard flat blade and bolt them up. OEM blade should still cut slightly lower than the added blade.

    Hope this helps
