gator 825 clutch upgrade

Hi all,
I have a 825i with a serial number 23263, and I see at serial number 60000 they have a different driven and drive clutch. They went from a AM146794 to a AM196793 and from a AM141396 to a AM145994. Now, both my clutches are stuffed and I was wondering if anyone could tell me whether these newer clutches will fit my older machine? I've had clutch problems with this gator before, so I was hoping the new ones might be better? Has anyone got an opinion on that? Are there aftermarket clutches that are any better / cheaper?

Cheers
Brett

Get a message to Brad Hill or the Clutch Doc. I sent my clutch to them for repair last spring and I couldn't be happier. I plow snow with my 825 and it performed flawlessly this winter.

I second the recommendation to have The Clutch Doctor (Brad Hill is his contact on this forum) look at your primary clutch. I went through several clutches under warranty with Deere and always had problems. I don't know if he does secondary/driven clutches but he did my primary/drive clutch probably three years ago and it's still working great.

Hello Brett, if you want to check on the cost of shipping on your end. The shipment is roughly 12 lbs with dimensions of 8”x8”x8”.

All the best,

Griffin Performance reworks these clutches or you can buy their complete tune-able aftermarket primary. Which is nothing like the factory gator clutch in looks or performance.
