    AND HOW DO YOU KEEP BLADES FROM TURNING. HAS ANYONE TRIED TO TACK WELD BLADES TOGETHER.:D

    You can't really run them inline, it would have a horrible cut and wouldn't mulch or discharge well.

    You put then in a plus shap (+) or "x" shape - or crossed like you said. You put one over the other and just tighten it down, but you should probably use an impact wrench. Most guys do it that way.

    I wouldn't bother welding them either, more of a hassal to remove if one were to break etc. Plus you shouldn't need to do this.

    Anyone ever tried double blades on a walker in an X shape? I would like to try this, but unsure if it will work?
    Thanks

    It won't work because of the timing. I wouldn't even try. I sent you a PM.
