Anybody ever use a later model 4212 deck on an older tractor, like a 728? Both are 36" cut. I have the chance to buy a good 4212 deck cheap. It looks like it will work. The mounting "ears" at the front appear to be the same, at 8" inside to inside, and the belt pulley seems to be in the same location. If the pulley is n a slightly different position a longer or shorter belt might be necessary. The deck height adjustment is different, being a lever on the 4212 and a T handle screw on the 728, but that shouldn't prevent it from working. What say ye? Thanks.

I installed a Simplicity 42" deck on a Bolens so what your talking about shouldn't be an issue. It may take some work but your yard will look great when it's done.

Good luck.
