Re: JD 54" blade Skid Shoes
I bought a 44" JD Blade for my LT166 last year, but bought a new x320 this year. I'd like to mount the blade on the x320 but I'm having trouble finding out what I need to mount this Blade on the x320. The kit for the LT166 (obviously) doesn't line up the same way on the x320 ;-)
Also, I think the transaxle is giving me problems on the LT166 as it loses power going up small inclines and I sometimes have to pump the gas to get it going. The engine seems to run fine and after the dealership put the wrong size belt on the mower initially, I finally got the mower going again. I'd like to get the LT166 going again, do you guys think it is worth trying to get the transaxle repaired or replaced? I can't say I have a lot of confidence in the dealership. When I brought it in this spring I mentioned that the steering wasn't working very well. They said it checked out fine, but a week later it went and I had to get the entire steering column replaced. That's when I bought the x320 -- my lawn couldn't wait the month it took to get that problem fixed! :-)
Any advice would be appreciated!
