Can someone tell me if a 42" deck off a 850 will fit on a 1556?  I have the line on a decent 1556 but it has no deck and I found this deck off an 850, so I'm wondering if it will work.  I have never owned a Bolens before and also needing to know what to look for before buying?  Thank You

Welcome :wave:

Do you have pictures of the Deck in question?

As long as its not one of the early decks it should interchange as long as you get the mounting hangers with the deck.

42" decks were not recommended by Bolens for the 850 according to the tools interchange list. Do you have the model # of the deck in question? The 42" decks listed for most tube frame tractors would be models:

 

18420

18421

18422

18423

18457

 

Keep us posted.

The 18423 mower deck was Original Equipment with the 1556, btw.

I'm sad to report the 1556 was sold before I had the chance to find out about the deck.  But I really appreciate the answers.  It's probably best, not sure it would have fit in my shed.  And this will keep me out of hot water with the wife. :) Thank you
