    Hey all,

    I wanted to know how to double up the blades on my 36" Exmark and 52" Toro Z Master.

    I was told by the dealer that it cannot be done on the Toro.

    Any suggestions?

    Please tell me how?

    d montgomery,

    Your TORO Proline Fixed deck is essentially an Exmark.

    The TORO problem is withen its blade cradles. Either they have to be machined to accept the double blade, or a spacer used to space the second blade lower than the cradle (not recommended).

    All Toro ZTR's with the old SFS and the new Turbo Force decks have the blade cradles. Fixed (most) do not.
