I have not been able to acquire a 38" mower deck as of yet. What I really need is a 42" cut. We farm permanent beds with 42" grass lanes between the 30" wide beds. I can barely squeeze the 46" deck between our plants and the difficulty is compounded because we farm on a substantial slope. We work old reds and old greens and love it, and until we're all forced to drive electric we prefer not to "down grade" to the newer models. Has anyone successfully made mods to any 42" deck to ride under our 316/318s? or is anyone willing to sell or trade me their 38" deck? Thanks for your help!
