    I'm reading alot on using double blades but the best RPM I can get from my Lesco Z Two with a 23hp Kawasaki is about 3500 - 3580. What sort of RPM's are you guys getting from your riders as my dealer says that's close to the max on mine. it seems like I should be able to get more.

    Slick, I'm not sure on how you turn up the R's on a Kawi', But you deffinately need to have them higher than 35' with the blades on.. I turn my Kohler 4000 blades on.. works great...
