Scrap this deck?

Discussion in 'Lawn Mowing' started by David Haggerty, Jun 27, 2003.

  1. My nephew used this mower to mow a right-of-way I have behind my home. Good thing I checked it before I took this mower to work!
    A lot of this is mud. You can see the trough the blades ran in.

    Is this from using it once?
     
  3. Just one time thru the R/W
    It's the deck on the 4 wheel drive Toro.
    I don't know how he got so much mud.
    Been afraid to look at the R/W.:rolleyes:

    For using something just once that is a very impressive collection of mud that he got under the deck. I too would be scared to look at the right of way.

    Those look like low or medium lift blades, that could be one reason why it clogged up so much. Of course, depending on conditions, I've had mowers with high lift blades basically look like that.

    I thought this thread was about throwing the deck away. I think he meant scrape this deck.

  7. You're right! I misspelled it. Then looked at it and thought it wasn't too far off so I didn't edit it.:rolleyes:

    me too, I couldn't imagine why he would want to scrap this deck for just some mud. SCRAPE I think is the right word. ( I hope)
