Hi Rick, Just came in from 3 hrs. cutting grass/weeds, here's my 2 cents..Have never tried a deck with two blades, but the WOODS 42CF6 that I am using seems like a perfect match to the Cub. Its simple and easy to adjust, makes a very nice cut down to 3" ...even with dull blades
, has chain drive off the PTO which is almost as good as a drive shaft, but it does make a racket. It has just one belt which makes maintenance easier.
The 42CF6 seems well matched my Cubs power...would run smoothly all day if I wanted to cut more. Its my opinion that the WOODS 60" might be too much work for MY Cub.
Looks like it will last another 100 yr..10 ga. steel.
The swing out blades are easy to remove and replace, the overriding clutch is also nice to have.
Blades, belts and some parts are available through Carter & Gruenewald Co. and are not too expensive.
Hope you enjoy mowing with your Cub as much as I do
Mr. Willer....Great lookin' '47 Cub...Did you actually let go of one of your toys
