My 40" deck doesn't have guide wheels (or even provision to mount them) but I was wondering if I added them would it prevent this happenimng



The deck is mangled at both positions the wheels are usually attached and someone in the past has made an effort to weld the rim to repair/reinforce the edge.

The first time I used it the front right corner caught a tree root and jammed the blade and took a bit of effort to get if free, It was obvious it was not the first time it had happened.

I moved the guide wheel from the left rear to the left front and it has helped. Just a matter of drilling holes. The bracket is now upside down, but it still works. My deck looked worse than yours. I have since welded a steel bar around the left front edge also.
