Woods 49 or 3260 mowing deck?

Postby 56FordGuy » Mon Aug 30, 2010 9:36 pm

Hey all. I've been away from here lately, but have found some time to work on my Cubs. I've got them both running, now my question turns to mower decks. I have a Woods model 49 (I think that's it) on my 154, and a 3260 on my 185. The 3260 needs a center spindle assembly for sure, the Woods is my current grass mowing unit and seems to be working well.

Are either of these decks more robust or desirable than the other?

Both are good decks. The Woods decks cost less $$$$ to buy repair parts for.

Alright y'all. I'm moving the Woods off of the 154 onto my 185. The 185 currently has the 3260 under it.

Do I need to swap the complete drawbar assemblies, or can I just disconnect the mowers from the 4 attachment points on the decks themselves and swap them that way?

Thanks!

Never worked on either of the above but worked on plenty of mower decks and you can go to a auto parts store and get the bearings and repair. I have a 154 how can I tell the difference between the two decks?? Can't find any tags or plates on it.
