Bikes/Tractors what else
Any positive or negative comments on the new decks.
Yeah some guys have a rubber mat they throw down. I just put the 3 small pieces under 2 spots in rear and front center. That's really the only spots mine makes contact with the floor.Rubber sounds like t was a good idea for you. Me, I found the right spot with the right amount of friction to stop it from sliding as well. Once you have that simple problem worked out it’s a cake walk.
I got the autoconnect on mine. I had to adjust it a little when I bought it 4 years ago to make it line up perfect. Works great. You can always add to yours if want if you get old and lazy like me. I don't miss laying on floor to hook up the drive shaft like I did on my 455.I have a 739 with the 54 inch deck, and I really like the drive over feature. I wish I had the auto-connect, but other than getting my hands dirty, hooking up the drive shaft, it’s not that big a deal.
I use a piece of horse stall mat, 1/4 in thick, to keep the deck from sliding. With the 739 you have to back off the deck, and drive forward on to it because of the rear steering linkage.
