I got an Ariens 42" mower with the GT18 I purchased this spring. It works fine, but I'm finding that a little wider mower deck would work better for me.
I have several decks off other machines--a couple off older CC Narrow Frames, and one from a Ford LGT-series tractor.
How hard is it to convert one of these to shaft drive, using the gear box and lift arms, etc. off my Ariens Mower?
Or, there is a belt-driven 48" Ariens mower on eBay right now... looks identical to mine, except the front roller instead of skid plate , and the belt drive pulley instead of the right angle gear box. Can something like this be converted easily?
