    Default King Kutter Gearbox ID help???

    Geting ready to undertake another bushhog restore project. But just wondering what HP rating the gearbox is if anyone knows.

    ITs a 5' cutter. Here are some pics

    -img_20140708_122342_828-jpg-img_20140708_122351_000-jpg-img_20140708_122405_886-jpg-img_20140708_165012_644-jpg-img_20140708_165054_615-jpg-img_20140708_165045_166-jpg

    The gearbox details:

    Ratio: 1.5:1
    Input shaft: 1-3/8" smooth
    Output: 1.550" 12-spline
    Output threads: 1-14
    Bolt circle: 4-bolts, 4.75" sq

    And the height of the inputshaft from the mounting flat is 6.5"

    Not sure on that assembly tag, its hard to read, but looks like: 9305 0325000

    I think KK's could come with either a 40hp or a 60hp gearbox. Would just like to know which I have. Will likely fix this up and sell it, would be nice to know.

    Thanks.

    I had a 5' KK brushhog. I bought it new and mine had the 40HP gearbox. Mine was painted yellow also, not blue, but it looked identical to yours. I sold mine and have a flail mower now.

    Everywhere I have looked have listed them with a choice of 40hp or 60hp gearboxes. Not sure if they look the same? All the stock photos I see look just like mine.

    But I notice EA lists the 60" 60HP model being 25# heavier. So something on the gearbox has to be substantially heavier/bigger.

    I cant find anything yet that gives a way to identify the difference.

    Nevermind. Found my answer. Seems I asked the question 3 months ago and got an answer but forgot

    It appears if the info is correct, that I have the 40hp box.

    Now on to the fun stuff, like fixing the broken gearbox mounts, straightening metal, cleaning, painting, etc....

    And I thought I was the only one who suffered from C.R.S.
    Glad I'm not the only one.
