Will a deck from a lawn ranger work on a 606?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

The title pretty much sums it up.  I picked up lawn ranger? carcass for $20 in hopes the deck will work on my 606.  It looks like they both use the attach-o-mattic, but I could be wrong.

 

Any help is appreciated.  Also if anyone needs parts let me know. It doesn't have an engine, fuel tank, hood, front rims, or probably other things too.  (Maybe I should just list what it does have, might be shorter)

I think you could .  The Lawn ranger deck hangs from 4 flat steel bars that bolt directly to the frame...no tachmatic if the same holes were in the 606 frame you cold use them or drill your own.  You would need to remove the PTO from the 606 as the Ranger  has a  different drive system.  A single belt that goes directly from engine to deck cross shaft, engagement/disengagement is done on the deck itself.  You would also need to find fabricate a belt guard (bent rod) that lets the deck belt disengage similarly to how the tranny belts disengages. It mounhs directly to the engine.

Not sure the 4 steel bars would work since the frame on a lawn ranger sits lower than that of a 606

Thanks everyone.   I took a good close look at it today,  with the help of my son,  20170801_112146.jpg

and decided I'll sell the deck.  

 

Then we went for a ride around the yard and all was good.

      I have seen these 36" gear driven decks on short frame tractors and lawn rangers alike.  And I happen to have one off a lawn ranger, but have a 606 I'd like to put it on.   Is this possible?   Or do I need some substantial modifications? 
       
      Thanks!

      Wheel horse 606 (franken). 
      Was repowered with a 7 hp tecumseh and has a replacement hood.   Needs a carb rebuild, was running and driving earlier this summer.  Missing a choke cable. 
      Comes with tire chains and a nice snow plow. 
      Also have a 36" mechanical drive mower deck that I can throw in for the asking price.   (I've seen them mounted on tractors like this but I don't know how to).
      400.00 OBO

      Update------- New carburetor purchased and will be installed.

      Having problems. Rod for PTO will not drop down far enough. So I needed to take top bracket off to get rid out and remove belt?   Next item, is there a truck to remove belt?  I can not get it out of pulley area as it is twisted and to tight to pull through. What is the trick?  I reserved forcing through as I am not sure it will go back on?  See pics.  I appreciate any help I can get. First time pulling off the deck.

      I am in search of a mower deck for a 518xi Toro lawn tractor.  This tractor was inherited from my father who passed away.  This tractor only has 56 hours on it, and was only used to blow snow in Northern Michigan.  I am located in South Dakota and have a small acreage.  I am looking for a complete deck, 48, 52 or 60 inches.
      Thank you,
      Dave
