    Takes less power, fuel. Cuts great in most grass conditions. Quieter, Safer.

    However since it has rained now and grass returned to lush spring conditions it leaves a strip behind right front wheel area that is not cut at all. Appears to be from more grass than can be handled in this area, thus reducing blade vacuum.

    Saw somewhere about double blade on Fastrak. Would this work on my RD??

    Should have stuck w/ XR7 deck. Could it be retrofitted to my frame?

    I am not aware of, nor do we recommend running double blades on the RD.
    Are your blades sharp? is the right hand blade a left hand cut? you would be surprised how many people don't put the blades on in the right positions.
    We make each mower frame for the particular deck that is mounted to it, you can not put a XR-7 deck on your frame, it is a different frame and will not fit / mow correctly.
