Hey Dave, so if you just mounted up the deck as it stands you would be running a bit hot on blade speed? 6/5 wound get you around 20% over in blade speed? I have a similar dilemma with a blade I bought for the SX 60. It appears not to fit but the only way to confirm is just removing the deck and see what, if anything needs altered. I researched it before buying and at least one web site indicated it was a match for the Zeroturn.

When I put a newer style deck on my 782, I found it was pretty easy to just replace the PTO on the tractor with one that had the larger drive pulley matching the mower. The PTO was starting to have issues anyway so I just ordered a new one and bolted it on. The newer deck and drive PTO combination has been a fantastic mower for the past 15 years or so and the only other PTO implement I've used on that tractor is a snow thrower. The oversized PTO pully made a nice speed up pulley for the thrower.

Maybe not the answer you are looking for, but you might just look into getting the PTO pulley size that matches the deck you want to use.

Thank You!!

So, of the 4 you have, the yellow one by the blue tarp, is a 325 and it has the 6-1/2" pulley...
That confirms the FB contact I made yesterday with the seller that also has a 325 w/the 6-1/2" pulley.

The other 3 are all 374"s, correct? One of which has a 5-1/2" pulley?
