    I've read about using double blades but this is usually with 36" wb or larger mowers. Has anyone used doubles with a 21"? Thank you for any help.

    Snapper sells a blade called a Ninja. It is basically a double-decker blade in one piece. You could try and modify one to fit the Toro. They are excellent mulching blades. The best I've used.

    Most new hondas come with 2 blades but personaly I had a crapsman way back that did a better job.

    I'm interested in running doubles on a 21" Toro Pro-Line as well. My question, though, is how do you guys attache both blades? On my Toro, there are 2 bolts to hold the blade on, not just 1 in the center, so this seems to complicate things. Some people have told me their Toros just have the single bolt in the center, so maybe that's something that varies by model? Also, any experience with different blade combos? I was thinking of trying the standard Toro blade with their Atomic (gator) blade on top. What other kinds of blades have people tried? Thanks for the info!

    Which model Proline has 2 bolts? I have 2 ProLine both with single centre bolts.
    Run a Toro Gator on top & LB gator on bottom. Can't run 2 Toro blades because of the lip on the Toro blade.

    I own one 3 year old 21" toro proline with 2 cycle 4.5 hp suzuki with bbc and just got a 2002 proline with the new 5.5 hp suzuki with bbc and both have the double bolts through the blade with a blade cup to aid in holding them in place. I too have not found a way to use double blades. I would like to hear from anybody that has used the new toro atomic blade.

    So it sounds like the double bolts might be unique to the BBC models. So Vipermanz, if I read your post right, have you run double blades on a double-bolt-BBC style setup? Or did I misread that? (quite possible, it's kind of past my bedtime...;) )
