Work for you?

Have any of you tried this? If so, how did it work for you? I have a scag tt, 25 kohler. I using run doulbe blades on all three spindles. Gators on top with high lifts on bottom. Last week getting ready for spring, I was sharpening blades and such. Scags' factory blades are heavy and are close to weight of double blade setup. The factory blades are wide. Ok, Now I am trying high lift on left and middles spindles with factory blade. On spindle by chute, I am running doubles. Gator over High lift. Anyone ever mow with this and results. Thanks

good question. I personally would not do it.

the weight may be the same, but the air flow with the different blade setup could make for other problems

The Gator is good for mulching. It just does not cut as clean as high lift. By putting double before opening, hoping to minimize springs growth clippings. Not having to cut twice.

How could they POSSIBLY be at equal height when installed. They may LOOK like equal height, but you're going to get streaking. There are only two different thicknesses of blades for this size of mower, - and two of the smaller ones do NOT equal the thickness of a thicker one. Beyond that, the use of Gators in the spring (in all of my experience), is that they are a hinderance. They cause clotting. The grass, as it's wet, tends to clot into little balls as it disburses. You can't always see it upon the cut when it's done, but you sure notice it when it dries.
