Buying a new JD X350 soon. I will only be mulching with it (I think).
I have a width limitation in the tractor storage shed.
Does anyone know the overall width of the 42" Edge Mulch Mower Deck (42M)?
If just mulching your thoughts on the 42M vs the 42A with the mulching kit?
I know the 42A, Accel Deep Mower Deck, has plastic cover over the pulleys and the 42M has no side discharge and may be a little narrower but I don't know how much which is why I need the width measurement of the 42M.
For me, narrower is better
Cost wise its about a wash. The 42A has zerk fittings on the spindles and the 42M says it has greaseable spindles, not sure if it has zerks or not. Both decks are made of 12 gauge steel and they both have wash ports.
The 42A has 4 wheels on the deck while the 42M only has 2, and I don't know if that really makes a difference. Also would like to know if the build quality and design is similar?
Thanks so much for whatever help you can give, this is a big investment for me and I want to get it right.
