I am just curious, I have 3 different designs of mower decks in my shed. What is the deal with the multiple designs? Is it for certain years? Were some actually better than others?
2 of them are the same other than the way the chute is stamped at the outlet. Those use the standard draft plate with the threaded adjusters near the front roller.
The other one is radically different. It has a multi-piece belt cover, really tall discharge chute, it appears to have had some kind of guard at the chute at one time or another, and a clip on draft plate that is all together different.
