    anyone? I have commercial lawnboys, 6.5 hp. anyone have them set up on their 21's? are they that much better then a standard blade?

    this is just my guess, but when i posted awhile ago about putting them on my 15hp walkbehind, it sounded like it would not be powerful enough. im not sure if the same pwoer issue woudl hold true with a push mower.

    lets see what others have to say on it...

    on the meg mo site, it states that 5 hp is the limit, when talking about 21" push. there is only one "set up" spinning. maybe on a wb, with atleast 2 spinning, you need the power, i don't know. what do you have 32" 36" 48" or larger?

    i have a 48" (see sig line). my lawnboy is a 4.5HP i believe, so a meg mo would be holding is down IMO. im not sure if anyone else has tried it, i would be very interested to see how it works. it woudl be very useful in small backyards with leaves...etc.

    I haven't tried it yet bet seriously considering it for next year. I think they would have plenty of power

    Just out of curiosity, was that on mowers without a seperate blade clutch?

    The blades are a little heavier and takes to much energy to start. Ropes break, our blades work better on a mower that you engage blades after the mower has started.
