    I was going to buy and install a velke before I start mowing tomorrow. Just wondering how hard and how long would it take to do?

    Is your mower frame predrilled? If so there is only 2 bolts to install. Maybe 10 min tops.

    Nope, but that shouldn't take too long.

    Is there any special hardware needed for a Exmark Metro?

    drill 2 (or 4) holes and bolt it up. or you could weld it if you feel confident you'll never want to mount it on another machine.

    doesnt take long, 2 holes for the velke and 1 hole for the chain if you choose to use the chain to hold it up when not in use

    about 1 minute with a welder and a guarantee that it wont vibrate the bolts loose and let you fall
