    Has anyone tried to put double blades on a 21" toro proline or a commercial lawnboy? If so, how did it turn out?

    I don't know, but I think I saw something about that on the Meg-Mo site, and that would be like double blades. Just a thought.

    I have heard of folks doing this but personally have not figured out how to do it on my Toro proline 21's. I believe someone said the way they did it was to use a Lawnboy blade for the bottom.

    They are now manufacturing 21's with doubles for mulching.

    I dit it on me 22 inch Craftsman. Cuts great! so much lift though, that bagging, it blows the easy open bag open! Don't think I have cranked the 22 since I bought the 36 eXmark..

    if you do it with a lawnboy you have to put the factory lawnboy blade on the bottom, i use a gator for the top or a universal mulcher, as long as the top blade is flat around the mounting bolts, you'll be fine
