First post here. Learned lots and I've tried to bore a hole in the internet for this but can't find a reasonably priced set of replacement blades for my Ford 42" deck (09GN3682). The best I can do is $35/ea from Messicks. I've read a lot that the mower, a YT16H, is near identical to many different makes. Does this similarity extend to the deck?
I picked this mower up for $100 (smokin' deal I know) so I'm a bit leery of spending $105 to replace the blades that are nearing shrapnel status.
I bought some that were near identical for $35 for a set of three (They were for a Jacobson, maybe I'm remembering wrong) except the bolt pattern was wrong so I returned them. Should I have bought new spindles that match? Any ideas from fellow Ford 42" deck owners?
I could say more but I've already written a book...
