Mower Deflector Shields

Recommended Posts

You do have one don't you? Their purpose is for safety - they keep peoples feet from getting too close to the blades and help delect "flying debris" back towards the ground (away from the house windows and other peoples eyes, important things like that).You know your'e only supposed to be cutting grass - right? That is a good thing. But over the years they get stepped on, banged up and perhaps bent down more than they should be - this does not help to disperse or broadcast the grass well - especially in the beginning of the season when it grows pretty fast. You would be surprised how a slight adjustment back upward can really make that grass FLY out of there - just don't go too far or you might defeat the delectors purpose :( Rock guards also located under the discharge area help not only to deflect "projectiles" but to strenghten that open corner from getting bent inward so if you have removed it it may be best to at least bolt the reinforcement plate back on.

Jeff, I have found the on most all of the used decks the deflector shield, the rock guard and the baffle are missing. The only complete deck I ever got was an old rusted out deck that someone gave me. The deck had holes rusted in it but the rest of the deck was perfect even the bearings. I swapped all the parts onto another deck and now have a complete deck, no missing parts. Every deck I have seen with the rock guard missing is bent back on that side. The rock guard is a structural piece of the deck. Tim

to your foot with out any type of guard. I took a peice of rubber mud flat that would be use on a semi trailer and cut it to rapp up and over the opening of the shute. I cut it to extend about 7" outward from the shute as to protect my foot or anyone elses from the outboard blade. It being rubber still permits me to trim within about 3" on that side if needed but most of all if when the peice of rubber is mounted you close the opening just a bit it does act somewhat as a sheid. Just a thought jackl

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time
