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

Recommended Posts

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.

      Hello! I have a 1975 C-100 lawn tractor, and it's in pretty decent shape. Only problem is the mower deck is shot. I've been browsing for used decks, but I'm not seeing any of the original part number, s-0622. So I'm wondering, what other decks would be compatible with this model? 
       
      Thanks!

      Does anyone have a illustrated parts list, or a link to one, for a 1984 Wheel Horse 48" mower deck that includes the spindle & blade assemblies?
       
      Thanks in advance for any help........................Mike

      Got a hold of a mower deck but need to add the hanging frame and clutch. Would anyone be able to get me the measurements for these parts?  Looks like simple flat bar and rod for the hangers and angle iron on the deck. Clutch maybe more of a challenge. Would also appreciate any up close pictures especially of the clutch. I have a 36 inch deck and the hanger on it wont work on this low profile framed tractor. Was also considering getting a tach a matic type hanger system off a more modern deck and modifying it to fit this tractor. Easily bought from Ebay. Not sure if it might be too tall to fit under with the tach a matic. But would rather keep more original, maybe even find the right deck all together. This is my future project to rebuild top to bottom. Also working on a 1986 417-8 no engine but have 12hp Kohler for her.

      Just recently purchased a 1964 34R and a separate deal landed a Snow Thrower, believe it to be a ST323 maybe a 324. It does not have the idler pulley. I did find posts for measurements on the pulley arm for Ranger. I need close up pics of the ends of the clutch rod and the crank rod as well as measurements so that I can fab these parts. Or if anyone has these parts for sale I would be interested.
