    Had double gators on today and hit a tree root. The two blades came together (or tried to).. Not good :eek: Bent both blades. It kills me that they were brand new. Oh well.....

    S*** happens...when I run double Gators in the Fall, I bump the mower decks up one spacer...sometimes even 2 cause you can't see what's under all the leaves.

    just my 2 cents

    Boy I've had that happen to me plenty. When that happens to me, the deck goes up a notch and that becomes th minimum cutting height for that lawn. On a lot of lawns 1 set of blades takes all your profit.
