So I was able to pick up a Suburban with a deck, 3pt, and turning plow. Also had a leaf vac that hooks to the 3pt. Engine smokes and has a slight knock to it so if I keep it there may be a repower in the future. I don't recognize the deck though, looks to be made of plate instead of stamped. Anyone know if its supossed to be a floating deck, because the front axle appears to be vert worn from the weight of the deck. Here's a few pics, tell me what you think.

The deck appears to be correct. Interesting deflector chute though...not sure I've seen one quite like that before...but then again I've never seen an original leaf vac for one either so that explains that.

Well the leaf vac is actually an E-Z Vac. I emailed the conpany that bought the vac manufacturer to see if I can get a replacement bag for it. The deck has part of the model plate still on it so I know its Sears, just never seen one like it. I'm sure some ppl are mad I got it lol, there were ppl calling about it as I was loading up!

Yeah that is the right deck. The early Suburban's had that deck with the axle link. 68 or so they did away with that style. Tractor looks to be in good shape.
