    I have a 48" lazer z, what do you think about double blading , high lift on the bottom and gators on top?

    exmark usually doesn't recommend running doubles on anything they build. i've done it before when i had one, two fairly dull sets of blades seems to cut about like one sharp set. the velocity of the discharge is a lot more too, seems to make a big mess to me.

    Well first off what don't you like about the single blade set-up?

    na. its a 48" with a 23hp might not be a briggs, I'll have to look again, But it is 48/23
    as for what I don't like about the single blade action, just wanted to seeabout a better cut with less clumping, gator blades just aint satifactory.

    I have found on the tyr deck that the notched high lifts where great all the time.
