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.
