I have a few minor things to fix. Going to put a new headlight assembly on it as it is cracked. (Lights work though lol) Also going to put on some new blades. Possibly gator blades.
Just for fun, last Fall I fab'ed up a block for my mower outlet so chopping up leaves would be easier. It worked very well and only took a few minutes to make. You might try something like that out to see if mulching would be helpful. Here are a couple (bad) pictures. The bottom straps wrap around the outlet chute support bar and a bolt through an existing deck hole secures the top. (The wood was rough-cut oak)Well I would love to fit a mulch kit, but not any luck yet. I have a smaller property. This mower is a little over kill. I have a 1/4-1/3 acre. Big side yard though...(45x120).
How many hours do you have on yours and what have you done to it? Any heads up would be appreciated.
