I got this 50” deck from Brandon a while back. Thought it was a regular 44” but after some measurements I confirmed it was a 50” and it will fit either Hulk II or BOH. The thought is to fix this (not restore) to be used to mow with either Hulk or BOH, leaving their decks restored. I have a set of good mandrills for this. Got it tore down except for two recessed bolts that I’ll have to cut of from the bottom. It has some rust through areas on the back, JB Weld will fix this. Couple dents on the front, and the Shute area looks bent in some but not sure. I’ll pick up some flat stock to make new runners, Not sure I can make the Shute side, but I have a 44” one that I can use as a template, it is too small and doesn’t fit (may be the way the deck is bent in). Blades are not bent, but will need work. No belt cover, so I will need to brace the idler pulley bracket. Overall this should fix up fine for use.  

 

I need the Craftsman Tractor model # that uses the 50” deck to see what belts are needed and if there are any parts still available.

Not sure yet but I think the Sears FF/24 used this deck, The deck model I found was 917.253660 but nothing is coming up in a search.

Thanks Kenny, but the FF/24 deck is more like the Roper's. The angled discharge looks correct when compared to this picture. Any idea the model number of this?

Couldn't make a guess on that model!  Is it a vertical shaft engine?

Can you find a part # on the blades?  Might be able to figure something out that way.

Try this model # : 917.25026. It looks like the pic and had a 50" deck! Discharge looks angled like that to.

 

I opened the 917.250261 at Sears and the deck may not be the same as what you have.

Neighbors FF20 has a 50" deck but no wheel kit on it. Looked through a bunch of pics of FF18-FF24 decks and none of them had wheels. I don't think they have the the ability to float do they? My neighbors FF20 scalps horribly when he mowed with it.

 

 

Looks like a deck on a Kohler powered Craftsman GT6000.

 

Craftsman Deck model Number 917.253891 50"

Found it Watching Youtube videos again lol. This fella was kind enough to show the tags on the tractor and Deck.

 

 

The plastic grill Diehard GT6000 with Vertical shaft Kohler twin uses the same exact deck.

And the Winner is EricfromPA! Yep that is the deck! Looks the same as the 44"'s except has three center front rollers. I do need some welding done to it, will talk with my neighbor this weekend.

Thanks again Eric!

Taking the shell to a welder tomorrow. Started to see if I could salvage the blades. A lot of work, but one is done. Blade part number is 121798X for those following along at home.

Deck is at the welders, and I ordered a sleeve to receiver adapter so I can use the carrier on BOH at this years show.

Nice! I never thought of that. I bolted the receiver where the bagger would attach.

I don't think these blades have ever been sharpened. I have a good edge on all of them now and a basic balance. Still need to wire brush two of them and paint. Deck is still at the welder.
