    does anyone know if i can run double blades on a 61" turf tiger?
    if so do i need some brackets or something or just double them up and go.

    You don't need bracket's, just place them how you want them and torque them down with your choice of tool. If you get them good and tight they won't move unless you hit something pretty solid.

    Your blades will now be below the deck a bit, which will allow you to scalp easier. You may want to get some big washers to make a pile a little smaller then the stock spacer so when you put on the double blades you will be at the same depth as the stock with one blade.

    Be careful how often you run doubles. It is very hard on the clutch and gearbox. If I were you I would try Meg-Mo's. I have them on my scag and they by far outperform it with doubles.
