  • Husqvarna Tractor Deck Repair

    I welded the right hand support bracket back on the mower deck of a lawn tractor. The owner had attempted to weld it without success and then drilled a bunch of holes so that he could add angle iron brackets. He positioned the bracket in the wrong place so the belt hit the black link, so he ground a notch in the black link. I TIG welded up all of the holes using an Aluminum backing plate and I MIG welded the support bracket back in place.

      Guess what I was doing today.... Same thing on my JD riding mower, deck repairs.... Only a few cracks and the bar that connect both sides of the skirt (at chute) broke off..... Put some bar stock into lip, a little weld.... Save $814 dollars according to JD new parts list.... Got to finish it tomorrow but all the pieces straighten or repair and everything tack welded....So its simply finish welds and reassemble ...

      A trick I found out too... Blade spindles are anywhere from $40 to $60 (depending on source) plus shipping.. But I can buy the bearings for $8 each... So rebuild spindle costs me $16... If I do all three, $48, instead of $120 to $180....

          That's a lot easier than washing all the dirty, wet grass clippings off the mower before putting it away!

          Nicely done.
