    I run gators on my 48" GHS deck. I had to grind one fin on each blade to clear the deck. I have heard that this problem has been resolved. It did seem to pack more grass/leaves in the deck, which in turns means less frequent dumping.

    I ran an off brand gator type, and had to grind the top of the sails as well. they shred leaves well, but there wasn't enough lift to leave a fantastic finish.
    I'm going with regular blades this leaf season.

    I also know of another lawn company around my area that also used gator blades on his GHS deck and he also had to grind of the tips, but subsequently he took a gear box out by using them. Have you heard anything concerning this?

    I doubt that could be blamed on the blades.

    I have a Walker 42" GHS mower and just orders me some mo-megs blades... I am using standard walker blades right now... hoping this will give a cleaner cut in thick grass and not put as much strain on my engine with the double blades with mo-megs...

    has any-one used mo-megs on there walker?

    Let us know how the meg-mo does. I have them on a lazer and they do create more lift and chop up the grass.

    I don't understand, if the blades swing....how are they going to stop from hitting each other on the GHS deck?
