I have lost my front deck hanger for my GX345 54"deck and found one I can afford on ebay that is from an LX277 but with a no return policy. It looks like the one I lost but I would like assurance. Would appreciate any help.
Thanks
Chuck

Not sure, I believe the largest deck on a LX277 is a 48", it may not fit correctly

I have a LX277 and I have a 345

The U shaped front deck hanger is different.

The 345 has a wider frame, so the front part of the hanger is wider. (The part that swings up to lock into the frame.)

I think you are referring to a LX277 and not a LX177 since it doesn't exist.
FYI, the PN's for the draft arms are different on jdparts.com. That doesn't necessarily mean it won't work.

Well, I misunderstood that he lost the draft arm. I read lost as in the hangar broke off the front of the deck. Too much sun today I guess.

Sun? I keep hearing rumors about that thing, but, I have yet to see it in the last several weeks. :)

We've had nothing but the past month. Tomorrow, however is a 100% chance of rain.

You Can search By Parts Numbers Or Model Numbers But with the Parts I found You enter GX345 In Model search then You have to look under 80 WHEELS, FRAME AND OPERATORS STATION then choose 4 FRAME - ST604331 It' s Not Under the Mowing decks or Mower Lift .Crazy I Know somebody was smoking something for where the Put the Mower deck U-Bolt (y)

I'm in Harrisburg, PA and I made the trip to Fulton Mower Salvage in McConnellsburg
I may have to head over there from Buck Monday to check on parts available. Maybe get a better seat. You did not list the 2 clevises(#12) needed so I am still looking. Do you have a source for a manual on installing and removing the mower deck? Stay safe and thanks for the info on how to find parts for this thing.

There should be an online manual (web page not PDF) if you use google and type "gt235 manual" under the section Assembly or Installing Mower
