    The doubles work good for mulching leaves, but I think on my mowers it creates a lot of blowout underneath the deck and its blowing the leaves all around before I can run over them. So I seem to be wasting more time chasing leaves around. I might take the doubles back off. It also seems to be making lots of dust too.

    I don't think that double wuld be any benefit on a 21" mower, although I have never tried it. I do know that they make a 21" Gator blade to fit Lawnboy mowers, but I haven't used a 21 in about, geezzz, 8 years or so ... I couldn't tell you if they still make one today.

    Lasher, try just using Gator high lifts as singles, they have been working well for me...
