No deck on my tractor. Should have 36" book says. Haven't looked much yet, but came accross fella with a 42" off 10hp tractor near me. I have the quick-tach and mule drive, need all the rest. Is there any diffs in bigger deck mounting, say width of frame mounts or such or will it go on? Will my little 8hp run that deck? I'ld like to get a rear discharge one, but he wasn't sure which it was. His price was $50, so thought worth a look. Will it mount/run?

If it came off any of the B or C series horses it should fit. Some of the later model Wheel Horse decks won't fit, but for the most part they were very interchangable. The 8hp should run it as long as the grass isn't to tall. :thumbs: The factory deck would be a 36" with your choice of side or rear discharge. Here is my deck.

As Matt said, it will fit and it will turn it but be underpowered. The 8hp tractors were only offered with 32" & 36" decks because thats all they will handle without overworking them.
