Good morning all

Just wanted to get opinions...

I have a 2005 vintage GT2550 that is getting up there in hours >750...not blowing smoke, still works well...but I starting to replace parts that are finally wearing out.

I just picked up at a very good price a 2010 vintage GT2542 (plastic hood). Looks like I can hang the 50" deck on this GT2542...any reasons not to? I know its 2 ponies less in power but I dont believe that should be an issue. All else fails I will run it with the 42" deck and add 45 minutes to my mowing time...

Your thoughts?

Tom

I would suggest it may work the GT2544 and the GT2550 only difference was the deck width , 44" versus 50"
Measure pulleys etc before you start
