    mulch kit - will it fit

    I am getting a 1025r with a 60 inch deck.

    My brother has a 2012 X748 with a 60 7 iron deck commercial. His has a mulch kit that he no longer wants on his deck.

    Will his much kit fit my new deck? Hate to go through the work of taking his off just to find out.

    mulch kit - will it fit

    My neighbor has a X728 with the 60" deck. We had his tractor in my driveway yesterday cuz the two of us were comparing the decks. They look to be the same deck with the differences being the addition of a spring on the 1 series for the auto connect. The x700 line has an extra pulley on the back of the deck which would prevent the belt on the 1 series from rubbing on the back of the deck if it had it. Otherwise same deck so the mulch kit should fit with no problems. Looks like gimmo got you the part numbers so you should be set.

    I can try next time I see him. Basically the pulley is mounted to a bracket that is welded between the rear brackets on the deck itself. The pulley appears to be about a 4-5" diameter. I sits to the right of the gear box. The front side of the pulley appears to sit just an inch or so forward of the back side of the pulley on the gear box. The same setup as is wouldn't work on the 1 series because the metal rod that attaches to the rear deck brackets would interfer with the pulley. However, both my neighbor and I wondered if say a smaller 2" pulley would work. Would have to have a place to mount the pulley however. The deck belt on his X728 looks to be the same belt as the 1 series. So that extra pulley on the X7 could very possibly be the reason for the belt slop on the back of the one series decks.

    Next time he's out with the tractor I'll flag him down and see if I can get a couple pictures.

    I had actually installed a pulley on my 1206R/60D mower. It was an effort to get rid of the rattle noise the 60D has/had. It made very little difference and made the drive-over connection feature a bit more hairy and less tolerant of mistakes. My recommendation? Don't bother with it. I think if it could have been done at the factory, they would've installed one. cheesetrain's neighbor's tractor is further evidence of this. The minor belt rub the deck has from the belt bouncing around is very much a non-issue IMHO.

    My "anti-rattle straps" were far more effective at ridding the noise.

    I'd have to agree. I'm not saying one couldn't add a pulley, but there isn't much room to play with and it would make the auto connect have to be even more precise. My neighbors X728 you back the tractor over the deck. There is also no bar that runs between the link arms so there is plenty of space for the pulley. I was thinking a pulley that was actually perpendicular to the ground might be an idea. But the pulley would still would still have to be pretty small and would end up spinning at such a high rate of speed it would probably blow apart in no time.
