AC 712H 42inch deck

Recommended Posts

The deck on my 712 has been worn thin and patched on the right side (opposite of discharge). I'd like to restore the deck, but want it to look original. How much should I expect to pay for a used shell? I also saw that you can buy new from Simplicity still, but they are pricey. Thanks.

If someone knows what they have I do not see 150 being out of line for a good 42 inch deck. And that would be quick sale. I know the 48 shell only is thinner then the older stuff and they are something like 350 shell only...

On the web, I found a new shell for $375. Not as bad as I thought, but still pricey compared to finding a good used one. I found a complete deck for $50 not far from me. Sounds like it came off an early 716 and it is white. Not sure of the condition yet. If it is OK, it can always be painted orange ;-).
