I'm a new member and everyone seems so helpful in this Kubota forum.  I'm looking for an RC40 mower deck to replace the rusted out one on my G3200.  A pulley came off and the shop said the deck is too rusted out to repair.  I've had this tractor for 15 years and don't want to part with it, so I'm hoping someone has a deck in good condition for sale.  I'm in East Texas.

Might check with Kubota dealers.  Up in this neck of the wood the dealers don't want decks on trade as they cannot move them.  Tried to trade a real good deck on a FEL and they were not interested.

Unless you score a craigslist find, a MIG welder would be cheaper and you can improve the deck considerably. 

 

Mig welding is very easy - one of my decks was more Swiss than cheese. I bought some sheet metal (14 Gauge if I recall) and one of the electric shears at Harborfreight. 

 

I ground down the decay, painted on the phosphoric acid and cut out the puzzle pieces to fit. I mig'd until I was happy, applying metal to the underside and some of the top. Painted it and it has been rock solid for years.  

 

Modern decks, or at least the ones I have seen are a lighter gauge than the one you have. The G3200 is a tank and will serve you for decades. Parts are common and affordable.

If your a pulley came off I am assuming the top is pretty rotted. I have fixed a few sears decks by laying a

piece of steel with a 2-3 inch 90 degrees bend over the whole top and a few inches on front and weld it all over. Then using old top from bottom inside as a drill templet and drilled all new holes. Then you cut away old top from inside and weld some more from inside. It works and cheaper then buying a replacement deck.

I have two decks setting here but I believe they both have been repaired. They did a terrible job of forming these decks. They have thin spots in them and tend to rust through long before they should have.
