    I want to run doubles on my Exmark Metro 36". What type of set up should I use and what should I watch out for. Any help would be great.
    thanks

    I run gators over highlifts, just make sure you re-adjust your mowing height. it will change.

    This is the only place I've ever heard of this, if it were such a good idea, then why aren't the manufacturers selling it?

    The last Lazy Boy high wheel mower I bought back in the
    early 90's did have a set of doubles on it. One 21" blade and a shorter blade above it to form the cross.

    Dixie Chopper is selling it. Wake up and smell the mower blades!

    It works for us. I really like it during leaf season and spring heavy growth.

    Would running the exmark mulch blades over their high lift blades be okay? any other avdice people have for me? Also what could i expect to pay for gators?

    the last set I bought for my dixie was 70.00. Do a search on Ebay for gator blades that is probably the best place to look.
