I measured this 6ft KBA and it's 6 ft in the front and 6 ft 10 in. in the rear. Parts book footnotes state 5 blades per gang is a 6 ft.

On the KBA books say 6 blade is 7'6" cut, 7 blade is 8'8" cut, 8 blade is 9'10" cut. And my 6 blade and the 7 blade I had measured that exactly on the rear gang when set on full angle and measured to the center of blade and center of the gang bolt. Not set on full angle will throw the measurement off. That will be the bottom center of the grove cut by the farthest outside blade on each side.

It depends on the disk spacing of the KBA. I wonder if some of the parts catalogs dropped the inches off the stated measurement?


(5-, 6-, 7-, AND 8-FT. SIZES)
"D" on 6ft is blades(disk) & my 6ft KBA has 5 disks per shaft.
