    I just got the mower. It uses small bolts and nuts. Can you use something else? How do you double blade a 48" GHS? Do you line up both blades and use one sher pin? Thanks for the help:confused:

    You can get after market shear pins for the Walker. Dont use any other type of pin though,as the shear pins are designed to break,
    thereby protecting your gearboxes.

    I'm not sure if you can run double blades on a GHS deck. I asked the dealer and they said that it couldn't be done. However I
    believe that there are Gator blades available for the GHS decks.

    There are gator blades for the GHS decks. The decks are too shallow to run doubles, as far as I know.

    You can't run doubles on the Walker. Do you have the GHS deck?...if so, the gator blades don't work well....I tried them and went back to the standard blades. I guess it is a lift factor. If you have a side discharge deck I don't have any idea how the gators would work. Might be worth a try.
