    I'm looking for some feedback about the meg-mos on a 48" GHS Walker. Anyone tried them?

    I Have a set of Megs sitting on a shelf I used them once then took them off, I did not like them at all. doubles work much better

    I have never used them but if you do a search here (within the forum) you'll find all kinds of feedback and info on them. I think they probably work great on dry grass....but then, so do my gators.

    Mine are hanging on my garage wall. They did ok, but after runnig doubles I'm hooked. Will try the Megs when leaf season cranks up to see how they perform.

    Doubles on a Walker GHS deck...I dont think so....because of the blade over-lapping. I run doubles on my 52" and love it.

    I'm looking for some feedback from people that have actually used them on an actual Walker GHS deck. Anybody? I would love to try doubles, but i don't know of a way to do doubles on a GHS deck. I am open for suggestions though. My goal is to try and make clippings smaller so that they don't clog the GHS as often.

    I got a quote of $169.90 for a set of Meg-Mo's. Can this be worth it?

    Last I heard from Meg Mo is they weren't producing blades for timed decks anymore....was posted here.

    With the blades on a GHS deck being overlapped and timed, and meg mo discs have 4 cutting blades on each disc that swing, there must be some ultra fine engineering going on here to stop blades fron hitting...and when you break shearpins....can imaging the mess under the deck then!

    Don't get me wrong, I love the meg mo concept, just not sure about the application on timed decks, love to see pics if anyone has then on a GHS deck though, be a great thing if successful.

    We make the blades for the 42 and 48 GHS decks only. They do work real well on those decks.
