I just bought a Lesco 60" Z Two zero turn riding mower and I need some parts. I have searched around but have come up empty. Anyone have an idea where I can get parts?

The model number is 02001751. I was told it was a 2006.

I haven't been able to find any Lesco manuals or much info at all, but the Cub Cadet Tank is a nearly identical mower, so most parts are interchangeable.

Here's the Cub Cadet model number to work from: 53AH5D8X750

So far, all the parts I've bought seem to work, except the idler arm assembly is different. I'm still trying to find the proper drive belt.

Thank you! That really helps.

I inquired with my local John Deere dealer on getting a service manual. I will let you know if I get anything.

If you get a chance, will you check to see how your drive belt is routed? The belt that goes from the engine to the center of the deck. Do you have two pulleys on the idler arm assembly?

Here are some pics of my mower I took tonight. Hope they help. I pulled the deck off to do some clean up.

If I remember right the blades were harder to get than any other blade I've bought. I think they're 3/4 arbor. I know the spindles are outrageous. I think it was like 220 a piece. I ended up doing bearings instead of swapping spindles for like 60 bucks total at the local bearing shop. Took me about 6 to 8 hrs though instead of 1 including going to dig around for parts. The tank parts should work without issues if you can get one the same year. I believe both were made by mtd.

Those pics are very helpful. Thanks!

Does anyone else have a Lesco Z2 with an idler arm that has two pulleys, like this:




It just seems like a shitty design. I'm considering just buying the idler arm with the single pulley and seeing how that works.
