Is there a mower deck compatibility chart for John Deere mower decks? I am looking for a 48" or 54" deck for my GT245. I see a lot of decks for sale that appear to have similar mounts, but don't know for sure which decks will fit my machine?

I believe that my machine will interchange with the LX255 lx266 lx277 lx279 lx288 lx280 gt225 gt235 gx335 gx355 gx255 gx325 and gx345. I am not sure about the X300 or X500 mounts?

Any info would be appreciated. Thanks

Tom

So, now I'm really confused. I have been looking at buying a 42" snowblower from a guy. But according to the GT245 lit, the 42" snow thower will work. Now in this list there are 3 different models and only one fits?

My GT245 says it can take the 42" snow thrower. Then I look at this list and there are 3 different versions of the 42" snowblower, the model 3250, 3251 and 3252. In this sheet it say the GT245 can only use the model 3252? Did they change the 42" snow thrower housing mounts? Seems you should be able to just get the new mounting kit and use them, but apparently not?

Maybe it's time for a trip to a dealer. He should be able to give you the right info. Those charts are a good guide, but can be confusing.

Also, here's another tip - Try JD Parts. Here's a tutorial that will help you: How To Use JD Parts Online Services - Manuals - Garden Tractor Talk - Forums

When you go to JDParts, instead of doing a model search, click on "Catalog Number Search".
1. Then in the blank field, type in 2797, which is the Product Identification catalog.
2. Click on the "Alphetical Search" and then scrolled down to the "S's".
3. Click on the "S" and then scrolled down to "SNOWBLOWERS, ATTACHMENT". Click on the first one and then under the DESCRIPTION you will see the tractors listed. Just find the tractor you want, i.e. GT245 and then look for the blower size you need under "MODEL #". You can click on the left arrow if you want to go back one page and the right arrow if you need to go to the next page.
4. When you find it, look under PC/MPC NO. and see what PC it is.
5. Then under the "Catalog Number Search" again, type that PC number in and you have it.


The chart that's linked in the above post isn't updated, but the PC 2797, which is the Product Identification Guide, is updated in JD Parts. I feel the more people understand how to use JD Parts and what information you can get from it, the better. It's a powerful tool and most people either don't know how to use it, or what information they can get from it, or just too lazy to use it (we do live in a fast food society).

The info links posted in this thread are no longer connected to the documents. Can they be enabled or re-established?

The decks for later machines beyond the classic 100/200/300 series followed an entirely different numbering sequence. My suggestion is to go to a dealer and see what they can offer.
