    Just curious how you guys are setting up double blades. I know they cross + eachother, but is there some sort of spacer that holds them in place?

    kinda hard to see the holder. Anyone have any pics w/o the blades on it. Where can you buy one for 61" mower blades.

    Just take two blades and put them perpindicular to each other and bolt them like normal. If you have spacers on your blade bolts take one or two off to compensate for the extra blade. The bottom one cuts, the top helps mulch, they do not have to be on the exact same level. They will stay fine unless you hit something really hard the may get off a little and you would just need to loosen them and get them back perpindicular. Doing this will be a little hard on spindle bearing, belts, and motor because of the extra weight and drag.
