First off - disclaimer - I am still fairly new to this site and my SCUT (about one year of playing with this awesome machine) so my apologies if this question is already answered (I am not up to date on all of the lingo and my search terms are probably excluding things...thanks in advance for patience!
So, I have a 2016 1023e which I bought with only the H120 loaded. I have now decided I want the 54D belly mower so I can stop pushing my little one around. As I was skimming the online adds before hitting the dealer to put an order in at full price I found a great 54D which is brand new (2017) for a great price but the seller said it doesn't come with the mounting attachments for the tractor.
I already know that I want the mechanical lift and I am impartial to the auto connect PTO or not so let's say for now I'm going to go with manual (tractor definitely doesn't have the auto setup).
My question, being that I have only seen these things in youtube videos and at the dealer, is what mechanical attachments do I need to use this deck and can I buy them not bundled with the deck itself? Through skimming online I am seeing BLV1036,7,8 part numbers for what look like brackets - I wasn't sure if these would be included with the purchase of the deck if I bought it new from the dealer or are always separate. I attached an undershot of my machine and a front shot to see if any of these are there, I'm not seeing anything making me think I need to buy these 3 parts and install them prior to the deck being usable. I would appreciate any confirmation or adjustments to my current thoughts. I do see these parts online but having an exploded view or seeing where they go on the machine would be helpful. Also curious how hard to get these bolted on - I would consider myself fairly handy and work on older machine all the time.
Thanks a lot for any help - basically I'm wondering if it makes sense to buy the new cheap deck from a private seller then piece these parts together or just get it all from the dealer, i.e. if the price on one of the online retailers or my dealer came with all of these parts the 'deal' may not be so good.
