My last bug spray account today and the guy had a walk behind in the yard. I struck up a conversation with him and he used to do lawns. He had an extra set of jungle wheels without the mounting plate, looked new to me. I asked him how much (execting to hear $75-100 or more). $40 DOLLARS!!! I ran to get my checkbook and loaded them up before he could change his mind. Maybe he'll sell me his walkbehind! I planted that seed while I was there. He lives in the country and has several pieces of equipment like tractors and all kinds of Stihl stuff. What a deal! There truly is karma if you've read my other post about somebody letting me down.

Those wheels were sitting ouside behind his shed and the clevis is locked into the bushing. I've tried everything but it looks like it will get replaced. Also, I was lubing the other points and one of the bushings started coming out against this wacky cotter pin that wraps around. It may be functional but, it looks like a Rube Goldberg thing if you ask me. So, $40 for the wheels and I have to get a mounting plate (probably $30) and new bushings. I think I'm still ahead though.

I own several sets of Jungle Wheels and have a problem with them falling apart. I went to there website and emailed Jennifer about my problems and she was very helpful. They replaced my two problemed sets at a huge discount. Like you say though they look like **** but they do still roll. Somehow?

All I said was * * * * and got censored? Oh well. Maybe I should have said they look like the devil but they still roll.

Jay, you probably wrote c*r*a*p. Don't know why it's censored, happened to me too. Back to the topic. I got the clevis out using a hammer, polished it with some emery cloth. It works just fine. The other joint is ok also. I'm going to put a heavy duty washer on it and then a hitch pin instead of that wacky cotter pin. The pictures of Jungle Wheels have hitch pins but I've seen that wacky cotter pin in replacement parts catalogs.
