    A lot of people keep refering to running double blades...... What does that mean? Are you running 2 sets of blades at the same time? Probaly a dumb question, but you don't know if you don't ask....

    Asked my John Deere mechanic about it and he didn't see what a big difference it would make. Also, said he would be more concerned about safety than speed if I tried it so I figured I would play it safe and stay with singles. They don't give these decks or feet away last time I checked.

    Still looking out for you. Did you want a belt drive or hydro? Any brand in particular?
