Now that I have the G16XT up and running, thinking about a deck for it.  Will any deck from an Xl series tractor work on my XT ?  Also I noticed there are different decks from XL tractors, some are side discharge and some are rear discharge.  Does the rear discharge unit have one blade that runs counter clockwise like on the RAM ? ?

All XL/Medium Frame Series mower decks will work on your G16XT

Side Discharge:
18300 42"
18301 48"
Gsrdenway/Troybilt 14023 42"
Gardenway/Troybilt 14024 48"

Rear Discharge:
18335 42"
18336 48"

All blades spin the same direction on these rear discharge decks, and there is no blade timing involved.



Bolens also had an oddball early 48" side Discharge deck model # 18338 that was outsourced from Gilson MFG. They weren't as well built as the Bolens mfg'd decks and parts are even harder to find and even more expensive for it.
