I need some help. I can't find the proper size replacement idler pulley for this deck. I need two flat (with edging) idler pulleys. 5" diameter, 5/8" or 1/2" bore, 3/4 width were the belt runs. Steel, not nylon or plastic.

The deck is all painted up. I'm going to let it cure until the weekend or so, then hopefully have it put together and put on the tractor when the decals arrive.

On Monday, before I left, I did put the deck on and mow a small area with it. The mail arrived while I was doing that, and I got the decals for the G152. The decals look good, and it mowed very well even at half throttle.

Won't have pics anytime soon. I will only be home for 18 hours this weekend and plan on going to a Twins baseball for 5 of those.

After buying a Simplicity with a 48" deck for mowing duties, I have been looking for another option to mow with. The Bolens does a fine job, but the 48" deck barely covers the width of the tractor. Not to mention it is a SCUT, so the turning radius is not real tight. I have 2.5 acres, with lots of trees to mow around. With the 48" deck and a manual transmission, it took a long time to mow the yard.

 

The Simplicity front mount mower is okay, but needs a rebuild in several areas including a weak hydro.

 

I also have got a GT  with a 60" deck, that needs a stem to stern rebuild. The Onan in it needs work, and I'm still scavenging/saving up for that.

 

So, I have been looking for a bigger deck for the Bolens and I think I found one. More to come later, I hope.
