Can someone identify this deck?

I would have probably helped if I had remembered to measure it:) [img]http://home.attbi.com/~alan_scott/b112/DSC00003.JPG[/img] This is before I hit the top of it with the hotsy. I thought it was seized until I cleaned the debris away from the pulleys, now it turns by hand, but is stiff.

The dust covers on top are missing and might turn up later when the snow melts. I looked for serial numbers or other markings but all I found were the 2 warning labels.

The features of the deck would indicate Wheel Horse. Being a shaft drive though, I'm unsure unless its 48" or 60" wide, then it could be from a D-series maybe,but I have never seen a D series up close and I don't know how they drive(belt or shaft). Its an educated guess at best. Red is also a color associated with Massey and Snapper.

That looks to me like a Massey Ferguson deck for a MF16 to me.But I am not real sure if they are shaft drive or not.I think the model number for the MF deck is MF510.

I'd guess it's a 48" cut. Seems like the trailer is 80" wide and the 2 ramps are each 10" wide. The trailer is sitting down at the shop where I work and I'll measure it tommorrow and know for sure.

I don't think the Wheel Horse D series have shaft drive decks but I could be wrong.I can go look at my neighbors D after awhile to see.

IT looks very similar to a Gravely. I have a large Gravely deck and will go look at it. My first impression was gravely because a 4 wheel Gravely deck is driven by a shaft. I will get back to you after I check, Al

I just looked at my Gravely deck and it is the same. So, in my opinion it's Gravely off a 4 wheel like the 8000 series. I have a 8177. Good luck Al

Alan I got into this thread a little late but anyway, I have my buddy's D-200 Wheel Horse with 60" deck out in the shop and it is belt drive, not shaft. My guess is Al is right about the Gravely. Larry

Alan, It's absolutely a 50" GRAVELY mower. I remember working on many, many of them in my younger days. It could also have come off a 400 series or 800 series rider. Using the optional front caster/A-frame adapter and a "front drive quick-hitch", it was used on the Commercial series 2-wheel tractors as well. It needed a minimum of 12HP to run in thick grass due to the high lift blades. Overall, this design is quite rugged and orignated in the mid 60's (and is still in used today). Hope that helps, Tom(PK)

I guess I should have stated you was rightB) I measured the deck this afternoon, 40" blade tip to blade tip in a 45 1/2 wide deck. The blades are 14" long. It was real stiff to turn yesterday so today I just kept on turning it and it finally started to free up. The splines look good on that center blade. I think it just needs stripped, cleaned and re-greased to be a good deck.
