48" decks are hard to find. A 48" off of a B series AC or similar Simplicity will work on a 7100 series, I know because I now run one. The B series 42" decks wont work on a 7000 or 7100 series as the leveling handles will hit the foot rests. A deck from a Powermax or a 300/400 series wont work on your 7117 either, so you are looking for a 48" deck that came off a B series or eq Simp, 3300/3400 series, 7000 series or Sovereign, 700 or 900 series Allis or Duetz-Allis

I can make a heavy-duty 48" deck for $800, they will last longer than the simplicities and they run smoother because of the added weight. I use 3/16" steel for the shell and right now I use ford spindles, I am working on a source for Woods finish mower spindles, and if that goes through they will be a lot higher quality. The attachment system is almost identical to the simplicity quick-hitch system. I have pictures on my digital camera but my software won't communicate with it so I will work on that tomorrow.

What would a 48" deck be worth off of a 7117? Does not look the greatest, but mowed 6" grass very well yesterday. before I removed it from a the tractor; I bought the tractor an mower yesterday, to put a Johnny Jr. lift on. Bob In Kokomo Indiana.

Used decks(for Sovereign type tractors) go for $50 up to a couple hundred for a really good one. There are a lot of guys here in Illinois who mow cemeteries and such who are always looking for a good Simplicity deck. I know of one guy who rebuilds them and will give $50 for almost any Simplicity deck that will work on a 7100 series tractor. Decks for the smaller tractors dont sell that well.
