Steel Bar for 48 Deck

Recommended Posts

Im in the process of taking 2 rat decks and making one good one for my AC 712s. It will be a 48 deck and I have to replace the roller rod and from what I see on the site it should be 5/8 cold rolled steel. I called all over and nobody on Long Island carries this. I have put up a link on the site to see if this is the right product I should by before I pull the trigger. Thanks http://www.onlinemetals.com/basket.cfm?pidadd=4794&CFID=40226789&CFTOKEN=55756284

I had a hard time finding it too, and in a bad pinch I went with 9/16" because I had to have the mower running. It cut all summer, and has some slop, but really isn't wearing at all. I'm not a fan, and would prefer the proper size, but cannot find it locally.

Thanks for the feed back. I just wanted to make sure I got the right stuff. And while Im at it Im going to order some flat stock to practice with my little cheap wire flux welder from harbor freight.

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
