    Hello,
    I just purchased a 2002 deere 757 with 60 inch deck. Nice machine. Just wanting suggestions for blades. I have a 2006 Scag Wildcat and it throws the grass out nicely without grass piling up but the deere leaves a smooth line of grass clumped up. Would gator blades help this or what is everyones suggestions?

    Thanks,
    Daren

    The MEG MO blades will do a nice job.

    I use the JD oem highlifts on mine or I use double blades. I have found the best setup for double blades are the JD oem highlifts on top and a Dixie Chopper highlift on the bottom. You can get the Dixie Chopper highlifts from J-Thomas for less than 10 bucks a blade.

    could you post a picture of how you have this set up. I tried this on mine, but I don't think I had it set up right.

    Just put the stock JD highlift on top and bolt the Dixie Chopper blade(with a 5/8" hole) on bottom. Since the JD blade is what they call a step down blade it will actually cut a little lower than the Dixie blade. So it works perfect that way.

    Did you use the stock bolt? Just checking, but when you run doubles they are goin to be in an X pattern correct?

    Yes, I use the stock bolt and just put them in a + pattern.
