need help john deere guys

I have 2 large springs below mower connected to deck. I noticed one spring lost its bolt and is now the spring is just hanging. Should I be worried. Can I still mow until I get the bolt at JD. I just used duck tape for now to hold it up so it dose not drag on ground.Thanks guys

What kind of John Deere are you talking about? Numbers will go a long way.

Sign out front of one of the dealerships I frequent: Without make, model and serial number we are worthless.

I would just becareful, if its a deck spring you may have all the weight of the deck on one spring. You should be okay, but when you use the deck lift pedal both springs will move, and your tape may ripp.
