    Hi guys,
    Will a deck from a Walker 93 ghs fit a Walker 2013 ghs?

    You'll probably need to change the shaft. I'm not sure what year it was, but somewhere in there they changed from a square shaft to splined. Other than that, it should work.

    A 1993 deck is a fixed deck. I doesn't tilt up. The deck mounts are the same. The rectangle drive shaft on an old machine will hook up to a newer machine if it has the quick coupler collar.

    If it doesn't have the quick coupler collar can that drive shaft be replaced with one with a quick coupler collar?

    I just looked at my oldest owners manual which is a 1993 and it shows the shaft with a quick coupler. I seem to remember a conversation that I had a long time ago with my dealer about older Walkers that had fixed shafts on the tractor side where it made it a pain in the butt trying to change decks and having to line up each half of the shaft. I may be wrong on older Walkers having a fixed shaft.

    The older models did have a square drive coupler that was held on with a spline and set screw. They make a square drive coupler with the quick connect collar.
