    HELP! Hey guys put my Meg-mo's on a few minutes ago and they started banging aparently the sides of the deck when I started the deck up. Quickly shut it down when I saw the sparks flying. Is this normal. I know call Meg-mo but it is 9:45 and I'm sure thats what he wants is a phone call right now. Maybe my deck is not made for these I have a 52" hustler super Z.

    lol, probably not normal

    I'd say you got the wrong blades, or ordered the wrong size.

    No, everything seems to be the same size as my other blades, heck I ordered the smallest blades they have, they seem to stretch out to the same length as the factory blades.

    Did you take a look under the deck and see what they were hitting? That might give you an idea of the problem.

    Just keep it running it's sure to wear away whatever it's hitting eventually. J/K I think you got the wrong size of blades :p

    My guess is you have the wrong size discs. Jack the mower up and put the blades tip to tip and see if they are hitting each other. Also, look for marks on the sides of the deck. Give Roy a call in the morning, he'll get you straitened out. A cluncking sound is normal when you engage the blades but only at startup. Sparks flying is not normal.

    i read a post that you can't have a mulching kit.

    i bet you have fixed the problem by now.
