I have a Yardman 694 1997 model and the plastic sides and hood just are cracked beyond repair. I have removed all the broken plastic and I'm mowing with no sides or hood. It looks ugly but it runs and cuts fine. Where can I get replacement sides and hood for this mower without them costing me more than the mower is worth? Will it harm the mower by using it without the plastic parts? I checked out Ebay and Craigslist but no luck there.
