Uggg 60" deck maintenance required!


Recommended Posts

Ok my 60" Agco 1920 deck has been asking nicely for a few months for maintenance from blades to the deck itself. I've been asking it nicely for the season to finish the restore but I got the middle finger today from her on the more serious needs of the deck itself. So what gauge steel is the actual she'll. It looks to be 1/8  but I know the smaller decks are like 16g or so. 

I have to patches the front left side where wheel mounts.

1/8 inch would be 10 gauge and I doubt it is that thick but could very well be 12 gauge. 1/8 inch would work well tho and be easy to weld especially if you need to direct the heat to the thicker metal so as not to burn through.

Am seconding the comment on 12 Gauge.  Circa early 70's Allis was using 12 gauge metal for cabs, fenders and miscellaneous sheet assemblies. 

Good Luck with this project!
