48" deck

Recommended Posts

Over the weekend, the bearings in my center spindle on my 48" deck for my 917 went. I also purchased a 712S with a deck. THe deck was rough but the bearings were good. I tried to see if i could put the centre spindle on the 48" deck by mounting it above the deck shell. Everything lines up so i tried it. It works. The blades seem to be at an even height but the centre seems to cut lower. What could be the problem? Thanks again.

Thanks, i found the problem. THe center blade is about 1/4 of an inch lower than the other 2 blades. It cuts ok but i just have to find the right height and its kinda tricky with they hydraulic lift.
