turbo grass collector repair

Recommended Posts


Guys, I have a turbo bag collector on my 6216 36 inch mowing deck.  Since it is now very old and the upper and lower plastic housings are no longer available I have done my best to fabricate sheet metal repairs where holes have developed in the top housing.  I have pop riveted the sheet metal to the plastic housing but they don't stay in long and screws would interfere with the metal turbo blade.  Any other ideas on how to repair the housing?  FYI, I have also put a request in the wanted classifieds on this site to find another one with no response in the past  The worst area is a big hole near the exhaust leg leading to the bagger unit.

Any help would be much appreciated as having leaves and grass shooting out at me is not fun.


Thanks Dave

I would follow the first rule of engineering after-thought:  If it doesn't move, but it should, apply WD-40.  If it moves but it shouldn't, apply duct tape.

I'm just sayin' - - -

No, really, all seriousness aside, is there a way you can use the old plastic parts as a mold and fabricate a new one out of fiberglass?????????

      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
