    I went to my dealer to get a set of blades for my Dixie so i could run doubles. But he said that i should not run doubles on ANYTHING with less than 23 hp. Mine is 20 hp. Do you think it will work. I NEED them.

    I have run doubles on 13hp, 15hp, and 17hp engines. I do admit that they bog down the engine.
