Question cheaper cost washer

I am looking at item 23 in this diagram: https://partscatalog.deere.com/jdrc/.../pgId/20572627

Do you happen to know where I could find a non-Deere replacement for this washer? Or is the reason it seems to be expensive (to me, anyway) is because only Deere makes this specific size?

thanks

Re: cheaper cost washer

This not your typical flat washer, it is cupped by .059" to help keep the bolt tight witout using a lock washer.

Here's what is available on eBay,

If you measure the one you have, you may find something on McMaster Carr.

That's part of the issue. I think the repair shop put the wrong washers back on my deck so I can't rely on the measurements.

Thanks for the measurements Zebra5.

Re: cheaper cost washer

iowaguy,

I did a quick look at McMaster Carr, nothing came up with OD 2.5" with .641 ID.

I would buy up the eBay ones, might save you $10.00 per washer.

CCMoe

P.S. Find another repair shop.

Mark,

If you can get it for $1.61 from your dealer, buy them (M123522) all and put them on eBay for $10.00 a piece.

I think he also needs three of them, maybe not but if he does this would be a great help to him.

Re: cheaper cost washer

They're called "Belleville Washers". BE careful when buying though. OD (B) and material thickness (C) make a difference!

Hmm, just checked my dealer, 1 in stock at $12.01 each! Bob

This right here from rwmeyer!!

And although the dimensions of another washer may be the same, the properties will not. Bellville washers are designed to specifically provide equal force to a large area, hence the cup, and are often a much harder steel than "just another washer". If you want to have a blade that wobbles and maybe takes out a spindle before the end of the summer, then go cheap. If not spend the money and buy the OEM washer.

Re: cheaper cost washer

I don't think it's actually a Belville spring. I think it's just a rigid cupped washer intended to make sure the contact point is out a bit from the center shank of the spindle.

As for the price, it's less than $40 to repair the mower deck and they should last forever if somewhat maintained [ i.e. not left out in the weather 24/7 and the blades removed every so often for sharpening ].

Re: cheaper cost washer

I'm as cheap as anybody but blade fastening hardware is not where I would try to save money. I agree that the price is to high.
