Aww, so I had my slant on. Lay off me!

I just picked up a new [to me] three blade husky (yt42xls, welded deck) riding mower. I've fixed the steering (new bushings and some dentistry on the missing gear teeth), but holy motherfucker does the deck drone- even through my ear defenders- compared to my POS, stamped, dual blade poulan pro something something.

Hwres the actual question: Is there a way to clock the blades (they all spin the same direction) to minimize the drone? I slapped them on however the splints worked out after sharpening. Or is this kind of drone just a welded deck thing?

Three blade decks mean shorter blades (until you get to real big decks ) which means more blade RPM for a given tip speed which means more noise.

46" and 48" three blade decks are usually pretty loud and I didn't even know 42" triples were a thing until now.
