 john deere finish mower

i need to identify the finish mower (grooming) i am trying to restore,, 72 inch deck,, 3 blades,, each has its own hydraulic motor ,, all hosed together,, definitely john deere,, probably was 3 point at one time,, was modified to run on the front of a john deere compact tractor,, i guess it could have come off the front of a mower,, very heavy duty,,original paint is john deere color,,no data card,, probably mid 1990s model,, thanks for thinkin bout it,,

By no means a JD semi pro but that sounds like off of a golf course mower with the hyd motors. Go to JD web site and look at their commerical mowers and see if you find it.

Have sent PM to a member who I think might help but he normally does not look at JD topics.

First off, I note you say "definitely john deere", is that because of the color? Or is there a name plate, decal, etc., that leads you to believe it's a Deere product?

The reason I ask is that there's another company "Ransomes" (a Textron Group company, sister to Toro) who used a similar color green as Deere, but unlike Deere, absolutely dominated the commercial & golf course mower business for many years.

I think though what you have is the hydraulically-driven front deck from a commercial grass cutter similar to that shown below.

Does this look like what you have?


Best of luck.

thanks for the interest,, the base color ,, beneath the safety decals is jd yellow,, also,, looking at some belt driven period mowers,, there is major similarities in the chassis,,but as you have suggested,, it could be another make,,as this could explain why i cant find any info at john deere,, i will research the make you have suggested,, the hyd motors come straight up and have a cant in the middle,, maybe 30 degrees,, this thing is bullet proof,, probably 1/4 inch deck,, no sheet metal,, i appreciate your help,, if you can think of anything that might lead to an id please let me know.. thanks david

It is hard to believe they did not place any brand info on it. Look very carefully and look at the thick metal for such to be stamped into that metal if they did not use id tag.
But there might not be a real need to know the brand. It is possible you can buy the wear items just by matching them with off the shelf items.

You might try Nunes. They made mower decks for some john Deere Turf machines. Most were single spindle designs, but I seem to remember some that were three spindle. http://www.nunesequipment.com/

It could well be a JD unit, a bunch of the bigger front mount mower units were set up to run these types of decks, mostly for cutting big areas like road boulevards. They were generically called WAM (Wide Area Mower) and were equipped with 3 decks, one like yours and a pair of out-rigger decks.

Since the side decks had to be hydraulically-driven, the front one was too.

Have a look;

Best of luck.
