    Anyone running doubles with this clutch? Possible wear problems with 2 low-lifts?
    Ran doubles on my eXmarks last fall but they have a manual PTO. Wary about the Toro's.
    Toro WB owners running doubles: Would you recommend cutting the blade holder to fit the second blade or using a spacer. I don't see any issues with cutting a piece out of the blade holder for the bottom blade?

    electric. How do they affect electric clutches?

    Have tried a double set up on 52" toro wb w/ kohler 15 and was not satisfied with the cut. Can't attest to the clutch durability but common sense says its going to wear out faster.

    Burnt a clutch last year but I never checked the gap or tightened the thing so I think it was some of my fault. I continue to run doubles on it (15kohler 44" hydro) because it saves tremendous amounts of time. Its almost worth burnin a clutch every now and then. Just kidding.
