    I have started in this business for extra income this summer. I have been using a 36" Bunton Hydro walk-behind with a sulke. I
    keep my blades sharp and cut 7- 10 days. I have been reading about guys using 2 blades per shaft and some of them are the Gator blades. Does this improve less noticable grass clippings or make a side discharge a mulching mower? Some imput please.

    this is according to conditions an job u are doing. in dry weather ive gone to no lift ,with gator on top. still get good mulching but not as dusty. some places i just use singles . to answer, in the rite situation doubles can really enhance
    cut,dispersal,and are heck on leaves .
    do a search on this site and u will get bookoos of info and opinions.
