Does anyone know which brands offered rear discharge mower deck from a 46" to a 50" cut?

Sorry Maynard, never seen a rear discharger. Mostly, the mower lays the cut to the right side. But, a very interesting question - maybe some of the guys know it better then me (what's not so difficult :D )

This is kind of a hack job and maybe not a very good example, but SDs can be modified for RD.

Most of the later series Bolens tractors had rear discharge tractors. The Large Frames didn't appear to have one, but all the others introduced AFTER the Tube Frames seem to have had a rear discharge mower available.

Never seen such a rd-deck for (older) GT, only for walh behinds. Has anyone photos? Here at D you very often find sd or mulcher. Newer GT sometime have a rd and a bag at the rear side...

Case made one, but I believe it was smaller than 48".

Yep, 44" is the size they made.

Kubota had a 50" on their GR series GTs, also.

My old Dynamark was rear discharge, only 36" though. Don't know if they made a bigger one or not.

Elec Traks were rear discharge. You could add on the side discharge as a kit.
