    Personally...I wouldn't. My 62" Z is in the shop now because a spindle went bad (less than 200 hrs). I don't think doubles would have help the situation any. That's just MY opinion.

    I tried 'em on my 52" When I would engage the clutch - it sounded like it was going to fly apart!

    Double low lifts will do ok. I just took off that stupid cradle and put the blades in a "+" configuration.

    I have high lifts under it now...single blades on each spindle. They seem to do good, I'll try 'em out more this week end....
    well maybe, I'll probably be too busy on something that starts with X and ends with mark! :p

    Heres a post with the part number near the bottom of the high lifts...
    Toro Blades

    Toro also has a"super high lift, but my dealer didn't have them. They didn't say why, and I didn't ask.

    Those blades cost nearly 50 dollars. :eek:

    I've been runnin' doubles on a Toro 44" w/b for a year now with no problems. Fortunatly, i have access to a plasma cutter and cut another set of grooves 90* from the original in the anti scalp cups. This allows me to still use the cups, also insuring that the blades stay aligned.
    I turned the R.P.M.'s up to 3650 with the blades on. I usually run a Toro standard blade on bottom, and a Toro "atomic" mulching blade on top(same as a gator).
    B.T.W. i have a 15 horse Kohler on it.
