    Trade name for JD decks.
    Only used on mowers, so I suppose it distinguishes them from teal tractor decks.
    They have a problem with the welds on the deck hangers cold short so they crack along the interface between the deck & the weld.

    I buy cheap mowers this time of year and fix them and turn them in the spring. I needed the deck for a different JD mower wasn't totally familiar with the edge system. But it will work

    They came with the L , LA LX, D and 100 series.
    Also the residential ZTR's.
    a very good deck except for the cracking around the rear hangers
    Funny enough I pick up damaged ones, weld them up and sell the deck.
    Brand new they go $ 900 complete
    Same size MTD deck is $ 1600.
    I get a lot for scrap & from the tip because they crack, clowns try to mig the cracks with a home hobby welder & they crack again almost strait away

    That's kinda cool! Did they line up the same? No issues? Was it just plug-n-play?
