    Hi Gang,

    We hear a lot on lawnsite about clumping, double blades, double cutting, Roy's Meg-Mos and so on. It occurs to me that we often fail to discuss these situations in context.

    So how about this. We chime in with a description of:

    1) Where we operate;
    2) What type of grass we see most often on our route;
    3) What types of blades work best during heavy growth periods;
    4) Whether Meg-Mos work on this;
    5) What kind of mower we use (including a description of deck size and engine manufacturer and capacity); and
    6) Whether double-cutting is better than using doubles/Meg-Mos.

    Let 'er rip!

    This is a good start and could become a valuable database. Let's hope others chime in.
