does anyone know if deck spindles off of another mower will fit a 60" bad boy deck or if i can by aftermarket?

Why not replace the bearings? Bad Boy spindles are made to easily replace the bearings.

Here's the Bad Boy service and parts manual site. Order the bearing from Bad Boy and they'll be there the next day.

What mower do you have?

But anyway, That is the spindle shaft. It's replaceable too.

just really gets me behind having to wait for it to come in hoping another manufacturer had one locally

No dude! It's like fed-ex to your door the next morning! I've call them at 3 pm to wake up at 8 am the next morning with the part on my porch. But TAYLOR PRINCE or another tech will be able to tell what other spindle will work!

Good local dealer support is key on having a successful mowing operation. Without it or backups for every mower downtime will eat into profits quickly.

Any decent local machine shop should be able to heli-coil it for ya. Should be a 'while you wait deal'. It shouldn't be that big a deal. Or they might could retap it enough to get you going. Could mayhaps tap it the next size or metric and just drill out the one blade.
