    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.

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

    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.
