    About ready to spring for a D928 with the 60" PowerFold deck.
    No one in the area has one. I'm impressed so far.

    Would like to hear the thoughts of GH 928 owners out there -
    problems or issues; etc.

    Will be cutting KBG; plan to mulch. Any GH owners using double
    blades; with mulching kit?

    Appreciate it.

    I have used double blades with a Grasshopper 60" mulch kit. You do not really need to do that from my experience. I found the mulch kit, on a 60" deck, did a very nice job with the recommended factory blades. Just use the med. lift, or the contour blades and you should get nice results.
    The double blades are harder on the belts, the spindles, and the clutch, and, they increase fuel consumption. double blades also cause a lot of blowout.
