48" Deck Pulley

Recommended Posts

I have a 48" Mowing deck on my 3415h. I don't think this deck is original as it was once panted red. The blade speed seems a little on the slow side but it does mow well. The pulley on the deck is a deep groove 5" diameter (P.D. looks like 5") The cone clutch pulley looks like a normal depth 5" P.D. pulley. Is this correct for my mower? I thought that some early model decks or smaller decks had a 4.5" pulley. I am interested in trying this out. I know the load on the motor will be higher and the belt may need to be shorter, but I can work that stuff out. Here's the question. Is there a smaller pulley which will fit my deck? I'm hoping for a direct bolt on. Also, has anyone tried this before? If so what was your experience?

I think you'll find everything as is supposed to be, and that the blades have a minimal "wing" or whatever it's called on the back edge, so your blades aren't making a lot of air noise like some do.

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
