Anyone have any ideas about what brand deck would be easily modified to fit in a 1450? I need to know the spacing of the brackets on the deck & some pics would also be nice. I'm thinking Cub cadet or Ford YT series seem similar. Thoughts please!!!!

I saw a Cub Cadet deck adapted to a Massey once.

Let's see Most all Cub Cadet decks are shaft driven,and the 1450 deck is belt driven,so make sure you pick one that is driven the same way.

Maynard, the Cub decks I have come across are belt driven, haven't seen a shaft driven yet.

Kind of figured that after I posted. Haven't been around any newer Cubs. There are quite a few belt driven decks in several different brands, finding one that fits under can be a challenge. Hopefully, some of the Massey folks will gives us a clue.

I adapted a MF14 deck to my MF1450 last spring.
Used it all summer. No problems. If you decide to go this way, let me know, and
I can provide more detailed pics/dimensions.

I just read through that thread. Here we are March 20th, and it's 24c. What weird weather this year.

Sherwood did you decide to keep the 1450? It's a nice looking tractor & you did an awesome job on that deck. I might try to build one but don't have anything to go by for measurements. I've probably got the only massey's around this area so there are not many options

Yes, I decided to keep it.
Look around craigslist, or kijiji. You might find one.

I'm watching every site I can think of & auctions too. My son has a YT 16 & that deck looks like it would fit. Does anyone know if the 1460 has a bracket from the front of the tractor to the deck? Mine has two mounts behind the front axle & the hyd lift behind that.
