    Any of you guys heard of this before? A local LCO told be that he uses two high lift blades and one gator blade on his exmark walk behind. He puts the gator in the middle and then the high lifts on the outside. He claims his bagger doesn't fill up as quickly but it still bags like he was using all high lifts. All of the blades are of the same thickness according to him. Is what he is doing plausable?:confused:

    Anything is possble...we have guys here that run double high lifts, double gators, a highlift on the bottom and a gator on top, a high lift on the bottom and a shorter length gator on top, etc.

    People are trying everything these days.
