Mower Deck Servicing

Recommended Posts

Guest
When prepping the mower deck for another season of use it is a good idea to remove the top belt covers - grass likes to collect in here and should be cleaned out. Examine the arbor bearings and idler at this time by unloading the belt (carefully "twist" it off a pulley or release the tension spring) and spin each arbor by hand listening for any "growling" noises. Check the idler for the same and make sure the mounting pivots freely - this may have to be disassembled and cleaned. Check the belt for cracks and wear spots. Clean the housing top and bottom and check for cracks that will need to be welded. Before sharpening the blades see that they all line up with one another tip-to-tip on the same plane - within reason - if more than 1/4" check for bent blade or housing.

      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 
      Paul
