    They work very well but not for all decks. Most people with Scag machines have had quite good results. Best of luck and let us know how it goes.

    I have got doubles on my scag 36" and love it, I have gators on top and high lifts on the bottom. The motor runs good and have not had any trouble.

    Do you have anything holding the Blades in a " X " . Or just have them torqed ? If nothing holding, do the Blades ever slip?
    If they do slip are their any problems?? I wouldn't think so..

    Thanks,
    Lou

    I do not have anything holding them, I just torqued them carefully with the impact wrench, never had them slip.
