    62C vs 60D parts compatibility

    We just upgraded from an X series that had a 62C deck under it to a 1025R with a 60D deck. We had owned the 62C for a lot of years, so had built up a collection of spares. Belts, blades and wheels. I've found out that the belts are not going to cross over. The wheels look they'll work with some minor adapting.

    I know the blades are a bit longer on the 62c. I removed the 60D and flipped it up so I could compare them. I was thinking "Cool, I can just cut them off to length, make sure they're balanced, and be good to go. But then I got to wondering about the arbor size. I did not pull one of the 60D blades to check that, and didn't think of it before remounting the deck. So hoping someone might know if that is the same between those decks? Not that it was hard to do pull the deck. I'm all smiles over that procedure, compared to my old X series deck removal! But just hoping someone could save me the effort.

    That 60D deck is sure heavier than the 62C was. I guess there is something to that "7 iron" thickness.

    Oh, one more question. I see a baffle system under the deck, around the blade radius. The 62C didn't have those. It was just wide open. Are those going to cause clogging issues in thick and/or dewy grass? It looks like they can be removed, so wondering if most leave them or pull them.

    I would never attempt to cut blades to size - I doubt you would ever get them to balance properly. And donít know what grade steel they are but are quite tough and difficult to cut properly - but thatís just me. Blades are a consumable item in my opinion.

    You might have a mulch kit installed in the deck if the pieces are easily removable. Pics would sure help.

    I appreciate the concern, but I have no doubt about my ability to cut and balance the blades.

    I just looked up the mulching kit. That is not what I have. I'll have to take some pictures next time I pull the deck.
