    We had a JD F525, had a 48inch deck on it, with a 17Kaw on it before getting rid of it considering it only went 5mph, never ran doubles on it, i would think doubles would be ok??? The deck isnt that big for one or deep enough to handle doubles. I think you would also have to get a longer bolt to put in the spindle.
    I wouldnt recommend putting doubles under that deck but if you do, make sure you have a long enough bolt to handle the doubles.
    Good luck with your machine, hated my F525, too slow and no deck lift or couldnt handle hills, scalping problems too.
