Would anyone know what is required to mount a 54" deck onto a 1455 that was made for a 48" deck? Thank you for any help with this.

I don't know that you can. Don't forget that a 1455 has a 2" shorter frame between the front and rear wheels. There may not be room enough for the bigger deck to hang properly.

I'm thinking there may be wheel clearance issues. If not, it may be as simple as using the all of the mounting linkages off of the 48" in place of the 54" hardware. Compare the parts manuals between the two decks you plan to use and note the differences between the parts and part numbers.

I've never done it, nor have I seen it done. Not sure it can be done... interested to see the outcome.

Thanks for the info guys. This question came up because someone asked if my 54" deck I have for sale would fit onto a 1455. I'm just going to tell them no it will not.
