    Hmm.. i guess it might if you have the blades set down low enough somehow to get into the dirt deep enough to do it.

    You'll probably need to put washers or some other spacer between the blades and the spindle so they will stick out lower than the side of the deck. If you don't, the deck will keep the blades from being able to dig into the dirt.

    as long as the blades are higher than deck. As long as they are you should be fine. The blades will pull the grass up and the back of the deck will push them down.

    well if its a walkbehind put the front end a half inch (a spacer) lower then the back. then maybe put ur blades up in the deck a little more. and yes they strip very well, mine does anyway.
