Just try them like this, and see how it works for you. We use the stock high-lift blades with Gators on top. Works great for us, no special "kit" to buy.Originally posted by grassdaddy
Just put them on like this ( + ) and tighten them down,mines never slipped on my 48" walk behind.
You really have to wack a big stone to move them at all. The advantage of a straight blade and offset one is you get a larger distance between the cutting of the grass clippings. You need to make sure you don't hit the kick out baffle on the top of the exit chute blade, if you have a "gator blade" on that side.Originally posted by TROTTMAN
Why is an offset blade good?
I understand both blades would spin together, but I was thinking that if it hit something it would move like you said. I guess I could just move it after sharpening blades too.
That's not a bad idea but I swap blades around trying to find the best set-up too often.Originally posted by mastersensai
just weld the two blades together then you dont have to worry about them moving, at least that is what a friend told me. it does seem it would put addes stress on the engine and clutch running doubles.
