Spring is almost here and I need to get the mowers ready for work. Last year I had some problems with my Ferris. First off the deck wouldn't go up and down all the time. I found this was due to a frozen pivot point. After an hour of banging, I finally got it free. Also, I had an incident with a small stump last year. Check out the bend in the deck. A little more assistance from my BFH and its good enough for government work. Check out the before and after. Tomorrow it gets a good power washing and new hydro belts.

next time you bend a deck on the stump, I have found that if you go back over it in reverse it fixes everything.

How did it feel when you kit that stump? lol I know I have caught the edge of the deck on stumps of the edges of things, it can send you for a jolt! I did it with the walkbehind once while standing on my sulky. Sent my stomach right into the handle bars, knowcked the wind out of me :dizzy:

I definitely almost threw me off the mower. Happened in the fall and I hit it because it was under some leaves. So, I had no warning whatsoever.
