    Has anyone tried the spindles from J-Thomas? What did you think?

    Cant say I have but you have to remember that most of the parts on your mower aren't made by the company that put your mower together. I have used "after market" parts for years and never had any problems. I get alot of parts from www.mowmore.com I cant beat their prices and they are two miles from my shop.

    We've used them with absolutely no problems. We have put them on several mowers for other lawn services, as well. No problems.

    There is only a handful of bearing manufacturers.
    Chances are, the bearings come from the same place for OEM and aftermarket.
    If they are USA made, go for it. Imported spindles would require a thorugh inspection.
