    I have 2003 simplicity Stallion, which was made by ferris. It is a 25/61. The mower has been a great mower and runs great my only problem is the cut. Where the spindles bolt to the deck have gotten bent over the years so the blades are not level with the deck. I have tried to straighten them out and have gotten them pretty close but it is still not cutting that good. I was wondering if anyone knows if I could buy a new ICD ferris deck.

    Yes, you can but for a 61"deck, be ready to spread your wallet wide open! Have you thought about taking it to a metal fabricators shop and see if they can repair it or even weld in new sections, might be alot cheaper than buying a whole new deck! I didnt know Simplicity made that big of a mower in 2003, ferris now makes a 25/61" in the DD WB, but in 2003, it was 23/61"

    I might be able to but I am sick of messing with it and I have heard the new ICD deck is suppose to cut a lot better. Thanks for the advice though.
