    Does anyone run double blades on a 52" Wright Stander? If so, what are the steps in assembling the double blades...i am interested in trying this but i dont know what blades to use or how to set it up. Any info would be appreciated.

    Place one over the other like this ---> +

    Just make sure the bolt is long enough...

    Would 12.5hp be enoughf for doubles on a 36" WB?

    I run doubles on my 52" Stander gators over highlifts. Bolts are plenty long.

    I also run doubles on 13hp Toro 36".....runs great also.

    Not a bad idea to use a blade lock when running twin blades.

    If use use this device you do not have to over tighten the spindle bolts in order to keep the blades from spinning out of alignment
