    Just put on a set of double blades. Have to say i am not very impressed. I do not think it stripes better at all. I loose too much horsepower when going up hill, and i have a 25 hp kohler, and it is a little loud. The only good place to use them is in my dad's pasture mowing tall grass, it really chops tall grass down but still use too much power and not to mention the fuel use. I do not recommend double blades, just not worth it. Just my opinion.

    Sorry to hear this. I think double blades work better on some mowers than others. I went to doubles this spring and would never consider going back to singles. I'm running a 7 year old Toro Proline 44inch gear driven and didn't experience any loss of power whatsoever when I went to doubles. The mower is louder, but my Radio Shack Racing headphones take care of that.
