    I just put doubles on my 52" Lesco WB and they work great! Better dispersment of clippings, better cut quality and the stripes are really dark green/bright green. I dont know how I have been using singles this whole time. I can't wait for some leaves to fall so I can try them on that. By the way, should I take out a blade spacer to compensate for the extra blade? Thanks for all the info. :cool2:

    I just put them in a + pattern on each spindle. I'm running a gator over a high lift and it works great.

    I'm planning to get doubles for my JD gs75 36'' deck
    How many hps does your mower has? Do you feel blades have tendency to slow down or jam?

    You better be careful doing that. Those are timed blades on a GS

    I took a blade spacer out to compensate for the extra blade because I didn't want the blades to cut the grass any shorter.

    I totally recommend trying doubles to anybody who hasn't yet. I don't think I've read too many guys complain about NOT liking them.

    I have run doubles on my gateway with a 17kaw and 52" cut for about 3 months and I have to say that the cut is a lot better. But its caused my electric clutch air gap to go way out of place, the engine is going bad quick, mows very slow on hills, 2 gal a day worse on fuel and its hard on the belts. Still so far the good of running doubles out ways the bad.

    My WB has the 19 HP kawi. Maybe a little lower rpms in blade speed, but no real difference besides that. And it doesnt bog or anything towing me on the lesco velke either.
