    Question about 60d mower compatibility on a 1 series.

    Hello,
    Hope everyone has weathered the winter well, its trying to hang on here in Maine but the end is in sight. So when we got our new 2017 1023e last fall after a quick Google search at the dealers desk I decided to not finance over 3k for a mower deck and planned on buying a used/take-off this spring with cash.
    Ive found quite a bit just south of here for around $1,800-2,000 model year 2015-2017 with most looking brand new. But today I found a 2012 7 Iron 60D mower deck for $1000 about an hour north of me. My question is this, will a 2012 60D mower deck fit my 2017 1023e? I cant seem to get anything other than the canned "you should really buy a 2017 deck" from my dealer, so I figured I would shake the tree here?
    It is just the basic mechanical lift deck, but from the pictures it looks like it has never been used and $1000 is way below msrp of the new one so I would be stoked if it did fit?
    Thanks in advance if anyone can offer advice! Frontier blower did stellar this winter, but im ready to mow some grass! Just as soon as the snow melts that is.

    Never heard the 1 Series deck called a 7-Iron, but have had them on X7 Series and zero turns.

    I can't say for sure on the 2017 1023e, but I know on the 2017 1025r and newer that there are different attaching parts than 2016 and older. Last year I had to get different parts for a deck when taking it from a 2015 1025r to a 2017 1025r.

    The 1 series is a drive over deck. The hookups are way different then the way things used to be. Go to your dealer and really look at how they are and then compare that with what you see for sale.

    I agree with Levi. It probably wouldn’t hurt to get the serial number off that 2012 MMM and take it with you to the dealer and maybe the parts department can help.

    I wish you lived closer to me. I have a 54” drive over deck I’m getting ready to sell. Only used it twice after I purchased my 1025r last fall and decided I wasn’t going to mow with it.

    This dispels a myth I heard about Maine...That you folks didn't mow grass till August...Than it was back to blowing snow

    Good luck with the deck

    The 60D used on the 1 series doesn't have a 7-Iron tag attached. They have an auto-connect decal attached instead, although, they are in fact 7-Iron decks. The mmm that is pictured in the link looks like a 1 series 60D mmm.

    All 1 series mmm are drive over and auto connect to the tractor, like Levi mentioned. The biggest difference is whether they have the auto-connect PTO shaft or not. You can tell this by looking at the gearbox input shaft where the PTO shaft connects. If the splines are fine, then it is not designed for the auto-connect PTO shaft. If the input splines are course, then it is designed for the auto-connect PTO shaft.

    Google Randy Hill in Fort Fairfield, Maine. He is a Grey Market dealer. Great person to deal with. He usually has a Deck or two hanging about and travels throughout New England. He may have something for you by spring if not available now. It wouldn't surprise me the least if he delivers and sets it up for you. Like i said, Great Guy. PM me is you want his Ph#. He also sells on Craigslist and is a Curtis Cab Dealer. (Plug-Plug)
