    Any one using an Exmark with double blade. i have a 2004 model with the no-graesable spindels, i wanted to try out a set of doubles, using regular blades on the bottom and Gators on the top. However the local repair shop states that most contractors dont use them in Connecticut and one contractor that did blew spindles constantly. I am trying to get a better cut with out double cutting. Any one have any ideas.

    I know alot of people (myself included) that run them, and I have never heard of anyone "blowing a spindle". I WILL say, however, that I don't vare for Gators in regular grass.

    Try double high lifts for sheer speed in tall grass. Excalibur on bottom and RAPTERS on top for regular growth. Meg-mos for the really wet and dry stuff also for wet leaves. Have fun!!!!!!!!!!!
