48 inch mower deck bearings

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I am looking for a good source for the bearings and size for a freind who just got a 520h with 48 inch deck model 78360 serial 5901723, looks like bearing is toro no. 10966. Any help would be great, it's his first horse and in great shape, free from his father in law who bought it new, includes all original paperwork, I'm so jealous :D. Thanks for any help.

Should be a 6203 metric bearing. May have only one seal but often less expensive to get two seals and pop one out. Supply and demand.

6203 is correct.

 

Looks like you need a new belt as well.

 

Good looking deck. Hard to find without holes or welded on patches.

Think your part # should read 109966 and as mentioned relates to 6203 series. The size is in inch and is stated as 21/32" ID. 1 9/16"OD. 15/32" HEIGHT in retail listings.

Lots of options if search made by Toro Part #. 

One point that needs to be made clear.

If the upper (old) Bearing from the Spindle(s) is found to have no Shields, then I strongly suggest he does a trial assembly on the Spindle to see if the replacement Bearing also needs to have both Shields/Seals removed if plan is to use Grease Gun in future.

If the Spindle is like some others on WH Decks,  the grease access point is above the top Bearing and if the upper seal is left in you will not get any grease to the bearings. Here is an example-

The Example Spindle Ass'y is for a 1978 36" RD Deck (Double Shields were left in as there was no intention of future greasing), but is similar in layout with different dimensions and part numbers.

Hope this helps.

In Akron, Ohio there is a company Akron Wheel Bearing. They can cross reference any company's bearing

and if you have the old bearing they will match it for about a third of the price. They sell all over the world.
