    Big difference from 72" side discharge to 72" rear discharge deck!
    Just looked at the parts for the Super Z 72" rear discharge deck and the center blade is the left hand turning blade. However there are three different serial number groups for 72" rear discharge decks, so know what your serial number is!!

    The CCW blade is red, plus the head of the bolt should also be marked.

    I have seen aftermarket replacements for the L/H turning blades that are not painted red.
    I have spare blades, bolts and washers in my parts stash for my X-ONE 60" rear discharge deck and I have marked the L/H blade bolt with red marker. Also fabricated a blade holder similar to #381442. Breaker bar, torque wrench and 15/16" socket along with spare blades are in my service package for this machine.
    X-ONE, 60" rear discharge, Kawi FX730V is one awesome machine, I should have bought two!!!:usflag::dancing:
