    I put doubles on bob-cat yesterday. Last night it rained all night today I mowed and I was flabergasted there was not one blade of grass that was not cut nor that was bent down. The suction was incredible. A unbeleiver truly converted.:) :) :) :)

    Been runnin doubles for the better part of this season, and am very happy with the results.. Just hate sharpening twice as many blades, but what you gonna do.. The only thing I notice is my 36" with 12.5 kawi struggles a little in really high grass, but that's not a problem right now..LOL... Since there is no grass...

    my opinion ,some combination is good for most situations. drought not being one of them. great on leaves.
     
  6. Depends on what mower they are on.

    My Lazer's are better with singles, and my Dixies you have to run doubles on them to get the same cut as the Lazer's.

    I agree with LGF, I usually run doubles on my Standers, but never had to on my Exmark. Although I still have not quite figured the best combo ... I have seen most who do run doubles have a straight on the bottom and a gator on top, which is what I am using currently which works pretty well, but I still think it could get better.

    I've been running doubles on my Metro since last month. Works great unless it is really dry. Just blows dust around. I have the mulching kit.I run mulching blades on top and Excaliber notched blades on bottom. I just take off a spindle spacer to compensate.

    it takes twice as long to clear out mower if you run over a volley ball net.
