I got a DGT-1700 this summer with 60inch deck--It did not mow very good so I did redesign the under-side and it mows NICE! now-Blows out grass good etc.

But those skids on front Suck! I wanted to add wheels then found this [https://www.mytractorforum.com/18-bolens-forum/583434-update-bolens-60-deck-relocating-casters.html ] Are these a factory type set-up? If they work good I,ll make some this winter and put on? I have to pull gear box off anyways and make a new shaft it won,t hold a oil seal so used grease this summer---Old shaft pitted bad even tried putting two seal back to back still leak?
