Sunstar/Ultima deck versus Legacy deck

Recommended Posts


My dad has a 1920 Ultima with a worn out 60 inch deck; needs a whole new deck shell.

My question is...Will a 60 inch deck from a Legacy work? What about one from a Legacy XL? Those come up for sale much more often than the sunstar ones.

I'll also put a "want ad" in the classifieds to see if anyone has a 60-incher for a Sunstar or Ultima that's not all worn out.

Thanks in advance.

i've got the number of the legacy deck, but not the one for the sunstar. I'll have to look that one up.thanks.

If you have both product numbers of the mowers itself, download the parts bulletins and compare. If they are both LH discharge, the shells could be the same.

If you have the SS deck now, I would think you have the hardware needed to adapt a Legacy or XL deck to your SS. The legacy deck is the same, with the hitch and electric cut height adjust being the exception.

An XL deck drives from the rear vs the front PTO, but it's gearbox is reversible (holes for mounting either orientation). Then again, it's a matter of a hitch adaptation. I would look for a switch as well, and utilize the electric cut height adjust if you go with a Legacy deck.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
