A couple of months ago, I was in the middle of cutting my grass with my 1053 and the spindles on the deck started to smoke. I knew this was going to be a royal pain in my rear to find parts so I went looking for another deck. I found this 850 on CL with a cutting deck and plow blade. Guy was asking $125. I got him down to $90. And yes, it runs. It has been modified. the ignition/charging system now has an alternator (Mitsubishi) on it.
Well, looking at the deal and seeing the hill his driveway was made on I wasn't about to haul it with the Honda Odyssee and trailer. So, I asked if I can return with something heavier and the guy offered to deliver to my house 36 miles away at no charge. So he followed me to my place and we dropped it off.
Now the cutting deck is with the 1053 along with the plow blade. The blade I owned before this one was off of a small frame LT series. Still worked with longer clevis pins and spacers.
Okay. here are the pics.
