I have a 2011 x740 with a 62" deck that is getting a bit worn out. I found a good deal on a 60HC deck. I checked with two John Deere Dealerships and they said it is compatible with my X740 w/o modifications.
I picked up the deck and it does not work with draft arms on the x740. I have looked up some part numbers now. Do I have to replace the draft arms with M177097 and M177098 and get a hitch. Also the Pto shaft is not cross compatible on the gear box. But I'm not sure what the part number for the 60HC drive shaft is.
Anyone been through this transition before?
