    each mower can be different. You will need to try different combos and see what works for you. I always like the gator on top.

    I've been mowing lawns for 10 years and this is the first i have heard of double blades. I've asked around here and no one else knows either. Is this just for certain types of grass or what is the purpose- it seems the added weight would kill spindles not to mention having to sharpen twice as many blades every day.

    doubles rock! Just don't forget to grease them spindles!

    Do a search...there has to be at least as many posts on using double blades as there are about striping. ;)

    P.S. I use doubles so I don't have to bag leaves. That's the point of using doubles.

    in my areas. oh well ,do a search,decide for yourself.
    gators an mulcher blades take care of leaves best for me.
