48" Deck Pulley

Recommended Posts

dave45056
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.
