    hello all i just picked up a 56in side discharge deck for my walker
    but when i went to go install it the deck had a splined pto shaft and my mower has a square pto shaft
    the questions are
    is it compatable if i change the shaft?
    if so which shaft do i change? the deck? or the mower?
    and where can i find these shafts?
    any info would be great
    thank you in advance

    hey i'm running a 56 on my walker right now, we switch back & forth to 48ghs.
    the newer models have splined, the older ones have square drive shafts. they
    are all compatible. when you take the deck off the part thats still hanging
    from the mower is what you change. spray some wd40 on the quick coupler
    while you got it off. you can pick up a drive shaft from the walker dealer

    Change over to the newer splined shaft. It will have more flex and run quieter. The splined shafts are a bit pricey.
