  1. Does anyone use a twin blade mulch blade on a honda hrc216 commercial 21 inch hydro model?I was wondering how it performs

    I don't think that it can be done because of the bracket that holds the blade in place. Getting rid of that may open up a very large can of worms liability wise.

    Don't Honda's have a factory double blade setup on their 21's for mulching? Not crossed but stacked?

    I also thought that honda came with a stacked double blade setup as part of their mulching system.

    I used that setup on the homeowner model with the Xenoy deck. Can't remember the name. I hated the mower comfort wise but it bagged well with 2 blades. Doesn't mulch as good with 2 blades as my Toro with 1 blade, go figure.

    I will echo Scag48 comments, the Toro mulches better than the Quadracut (sp?) system that the Honda uses. I replaced the stacked blade with the bagging blade and the mower performs much better for me anyway.

    the honda 21 comes with the double blade standard from the factory.It mulches very good.Though the toro does mulch a little bet better for me.But the honda does have a great cut.Just keep the blades sharp

    I must be missing something here. I bought a Honda this past summer (216) and it only had a single blade, and no mention was made of a dual blade system. Is this an American thing or what?

    I have a 216 I got last year it has two blades but i cant see as to where it cuts any better than the single blades.
