    I have read some past posts, but havent really found the answer I am looking for.
    What blades make the best stripes?
    I use an Exmark laser z and a Great dane scamper 36".
    If I use doubles, do you need a spacer in between? And what combination works best?



    thanks

    No Spacer- Double high Lifts.

    If you are putting doubles on the you can put the m in either a x or + it dosen't really matter it's just personal preference. I have NEVER use the bobcat off set blades but, I have seen the results and there very good. :)

    I run a 36" Great Dane scamper I cut wet grass constantly here in washington and the double high lifts work great for mulching and bagging.

    Super highs lay great stripes. Doubles, even better.

    Try the MEG MO blades . They will give strip and will do a lot better in most all other parts of your mowing.

    Stripes dont have as much to do with blades as they do with deck pitch and rollers. That being said you will want sharp blades to make nice stripes.

    If you dont have 1/4" lower deck in the front its not going to matter what blades your running. A roller on the back of the deck presses the grass down in the direction of travel, and enhances the stripes.
