Discharge Chute??

Recommended Posts


I recently learned that my deck is missing a discharge chute. Does anyone have a pic of one that I might fabricate by. Dimensioning should not be required, since I will simply have to build to suit the discharge. I have a 65 Landlord with a 42" deck

Are you sure it is missing??  The parts (model no 990190) list doesn't show that it ever existed.  I just bought a new one for my Husqvarna and haven't installed it yet.  would you like a picture of that??

As for fabrication, I would suggest you start with a hinge on top of the deck at the discharge area so you can pull it up and out of the way when necessary.  But you probably already thought of that.

While the chute serves as an added safety feature,  a lot of guys remove them because they can be a pain in the backside. The chute serves to deflect any rocks or objects that you may happen to run over. If your risk of running over debris is small, the chute may not be a high priority item.

Chute deflectors do come up on ebay, Craigslist or maybe on this site if you really want to aquire one...that's up to you.

I am trying to keep most of the trash off the rear wheel. I regularly remove the deflectors on my decks, or pin them so they do not impede the removal of the clippings from under the deck. If this chute is one of those, thanks for the knowledge, but, I will continue without one. I did not repaint the wheel this time, because keeping it clean is impossible. Thought a chute might improve that. I cut too much tall grass to have one of those fine deflectors that make a lawnmower "safe"

If you have the "Bolt-Together" deck, there is no chute that I've ever found.  If you have the "Stamped" deck, then keep looking as they do come around quite often as stated above.

      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
