Looks real good ! congrats on the purchase !
I got the idea from one of the threads for meg-mo blades. They are similar to a brush hog design, center round disc with blades that swing, but they have 4 blades attached. In the thread someone tried to get the meg-mo blades and they did not make their deck so they doubled up the blades. The person I got the idea from said it does not work as well as the meg-mo blades but it worked better than a single blade. I had an extra set of gators for my 46" deck so I figured I would try doubling them up on my 50" deck. I figured the 46" blades were only 1.5" shorter than the 50" blades, just to see how it worked. They worked awesome when I doubled them up. I forgot to mention one thing, I only did this because the meg-mo setup is about $200-$225 and I had an extra set of gators that I could try it with.Thats the first I've heard about using double blades.
Is it a significant improvement?
How do you keep them in that position?
I would have to imagine you will have more than enough power as that my 332 is only a 16 hp Yanmar diesel. You probably won't even notice a difference. That should be interesting with one set of Gators and one standard set of blades. I'll be interested to hear how it works for you.Thanks for the info!
I'm going to give it a try on my 455, I run a 48" deck and have some Gator blades and the stock medium lift blades. The 23hp diesel should have plenty of power to run them.
Good camera shot. I hope the blades cut like mine do so you can enjoy them as much as I do. If you notice a difference at all I would suggest you swap the standard blade our for the Gator G6's. They rock. I will try to do a you tube of mine mowing in a bit to show how the double gator blades do. I would like to see the video of your set up especially running that 455 with that extra hp. I look forward to seeing well that monster cuts. Good luck.I doubled them up over the weekend, put the Gators on top and the OEM blades on the bottom. Squared them and then tack welded in place.
Wasn't able to really cut anything because my grass was freshly cut last Thursday but I did run them and didn't notice any lack of power.
Can't wait to cut some grass.
