can anyone tell me if the 20 9/16 gators" for the kubota front mount 60 inch mowers will fit the midmounts? I've tried Jacks and Agrifab as well as kubota and cannot get a definitive answer.Thanks for listening.
I have a Kubota F3060 with a 72" front mower on it. The standard blades are really poor. No lift, poor discharge etc... The dealers said that there were no other options for that machine. So I went on-line and did a search for kubota high-lift blades. I found high-lifts and extra high-lifts for a Kubota Z something or other with a 72" deck. The blade measurements are the same. Same hole, length, thickness etc... I went out a bought a set from the dealer, they fit, they work great, the quality of cut and discharging is awesome. So do a search for your 20 9/16 blades and get the actual dimensions and compare to the other kubota machines blades. They may fit just fine.
biguugly, I just went out and measured my OEM blades and they were 20 7/16's (not 20 9/16's).
With the MMM mounted I also did a rough measurement on the std gators that I"ve had on for 3 seasons now and they roughly measure 20 9/16's. They don't hit anything and work great.
I'm not going to dismount for awhile but I'll make it a point to do a more accurate measurement.
You can try to contact an Oregon blade dealer for more info.
In my sig is a link to a thread I did on my BX23, starting at post #73 are a few posts on how I adapted the gators to my BX's 60" MMM, you can check it out also.
In case anyone else has a chronic case of duma$$,like I did,afetr a fair amount of research and a lot of good info from Volfandt,I discovered that Gator part#96-787 is a direct fit for RCK60 decks,provided the deck has splined spindle shaft and blade spacer,with a 30mm head on the blade bolt.I mistakenly assumed it was a 7/8 mounting bolt until I pulled them off,and had all my adapters lined up.Blades are 20.6" long with a 1.13" mounting hole,according to sticker.Hope this helps.Thanks Volfandt.
