Original Mower Deck Compatibility?

Postby cpyne » Thu Aug 23, 2018 9:59 am

Hi All,

Does anyone know if any newer cub mower decks will fit on an original? The original ones are somewhat hard to find and are often rusted out. I know it would not be "correct", but curious if there are any other options.

No, there's not a single Cub Cadet mower deck that will work on an Original, except the original, timed, 38", 2-blade mower deck that came on them.

They did make a kit to put the early 70/100, 3-blade decks (38"??) on the Original (I have one). But as you can imagine, that's harder to find than the timed decks :wink:
