    when putting 2 blades on a bolt is this the correct position
    +x+ or x+x also is there any way to avoid belt wear if there is any

    Lawngeek When you have that many blades under there, it doesn't seem to make much difference how you have them configured. :) To avoid belt wear, start up the blades at the lowest rpms you can.

    AWM Last fall one week when the leaves seemed to drop all at one time, I put on 3 blades plus a magic mulcher per spindle. It did shread the heck out of the leaves, but it took some power to do it. I wouldn't recommend this, but it has been tried. :)
