    I have 2002 Woods 6180 front mount mower. I had been using an older Woods that was made by Grasshopper, but I believe that quit in the mid ninties. Anyone know who manufactured the front deck models for Woods in 2002? It is nice to have alternate sources for parts rather than my local (expensive) Woods dealer.

    Not sure but that's the reason I don't buy Woods.

    Nope, wrong answer. Grasshopper has not made Woods mowers since the mid 90's.
    Call Woods corporate office and ask them. I can not imagine why they would not tell you.
    Post a photo here, someone will probably recognize who the builder is.

    May have been Bobcat, which at the time I think was made by Textron.

    Bobcat and Gravely have both built their midmounts from time to time. Bobcat has never built any frontmount ZTR's to my knowledge.

    Do you mean a "Walker" type machine? I do remember they made a compact ZTR like a Walker at one time.
