Deck wheel inside diameter, 4211H

Recommended Posts

I'm thinking of cutting off the wheel supports on my deck wheels and welding some new ones on since they are worn. I may add about a 1/2 inch to allow my cut height to increase. Any Idea what the inside diameter of the wheels are, looked at the parts manuel and can't quite tell, looks like maybe 5/8". Thinking of just buying some 6-61/2 " bolts and just weld them on. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks in advance Mike

Thats what I did to my 4211...Cut the old ones off and welded on 5/8 bar stock...Worked great and much cheaper than new axles...I drilled a hole in each side to put cotter pins in to hold the new rollers on..

Mowerman, I think I'm going to replace the axels with 5/8" bolts. I'm going to weld a bushing on the bottom and let the bolt pass through. This way one wheel will be held on by the bolt head and the other by a bolt with a nylock insert. My only issue is how much extra length I want to add. Maybe about 1/2-3/4". I may reinfoce the bushing by passing it through some bar stock I have and then weld the whole thing on. Should be plenty strong that way. Maybe not as pretty as new but should work. Mike
