    Only thing you will need to change is your deck height (up 1/4") to allow for the lower 2nd blade on each spindle now.

    We just add them on without changing the height, since we usually lower the deck for the fall anyway, allowing the leaves to blow better, and the mower to vacuum better, too.
    In addition, Bobcat and other machines with drop blades, can use a straight blade add on without a height change, as long as you mount the extra blade under the stock one.
