Hi Folks,

This is the first time joining a forum so I'll be brief. I have an old craftsman FF/18 that I would fix up and use. Currently I need the mule drive and maybe the mower deck for it and haven't had any luck seeing these parts on ebay. Any suggestion on who or where I could contact or look to buy these parts? I have a 42" mower deck from a craftsman LT1000 but I don't know if that would work with the FF/18. It would be nice to find a larger deck if possible. Thanks for your help.

 

Brian

:wave: Welcome to the forum! I have 2 FF/20's and only one deck myself. Not sure if the LT deck can be made to work. If I don't get too busy today, I can check my mule drive against some of the other's I have.

Thanks Rick, I'm a bit of a dinosaur when it comes to on-line navigation. I found the P.T.O kit manual but I don't have access to open the manuals, what do I need to do?

That would be great. I bought an old farm house a couple of years ago (slowly fixing it up too), and I had been using an LT1000 for cutting the grass / weeds but I was asking too much for a small lawn tractor to cut (several acres). I bought the FF / 18 a while back (it needs lots of work and parts), so now I'm trying to get it fixed up. A friend sent this sites link to me and I think this will help quite a bit. Brian

You should be able to just click on the one you want. A new window comes up and you click on download. A bar will come up with a couple of choices. I allways just click on "open". When the manual comes up(which sometimes takes awhile), I save a copy to a set of folders I have on my desk top. You are allowed 3 free downloads per day. Good Luck, Rick

Let us know if you still have issues with the manuals. It sometimes can take a day from your first post for it to let you download.

 

I'll get on that mule drive, been busy here!

would the deck and mule from a gt18 mount up. I have both and they look very similar.
