    I have heard a lot lately about running double blades, I have never heard of this and wondering basically what it is. I know that it is running two blades!, but why and what are the advantages and disadvantages of it. Can any mower do this? What grass is this the most useful, such as mostly bermuda or all fescues? Lastly what set up of doubles are you running for top pair and bottom pair.

    Get a big bowl of popcorn, a couple of cokes, and a comfortable chair and then use that search feature.

    Exactly. There is no less than 100 threads on here regarding all the ins and outs of this concept.

    the search button is not working for me today. I tried it a couple of times and keep getting a 404 error.

    scratch that, tried searching on my laptop and it worked fine, just seems to be a problem on the desktop. Found everything I was looking for.

    Let's try it the other way:
    Why would you want to run doubles? Do you have issues with your mowing????
    We run every combo imaginable. Each has it's advantages and drawbacks......Then there's the HP issue and deck design.
