    My left gear box that spins the blade is leaking grease. I noticed the other day that there was a puddle of grease on the deck so I cleaned it up and then today its back. So that means its leaking or cracked or whatever. If this is the case, should I just replace it or see if there is a gasket or some thing that's worn. Machine is a 2006 and has 1200 hours, IDK if its the original ones as I bought the machine used. Also I looked on ebay and I see there is a company that is selling cast iron ones, anybody have any luck with these or should I just stick with the regular ones. Hes a link to the cast iron ones. Also is it better to just go ahead and change all three which im replacing one or just do the one. How hard is it? Do they come preset to be in time with the other one. I have the 36 in ghs deck. Enough questions let me see what advice I can get on here lol. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Walker-Mowe...ultDomain_0&hash=item19cdcc1224#ht_500wt_1413

    One more, these say 48, but do they specially make gear boxes per deck size, or just one gear for all walker ghs decks

    i cut a yard to today where it was about 8 inches tall and a lil wet from the "rain" last night. IDK about you, I didnt hear any rain lol. But it was a little wet and I just took my time and only cut it ones and it never clogged and it didnt leave one blade standing and left an amazing cut. Im sold on walker haha. No mower out there would have do that if you bag. If you discharge it would have looked like crap and if you mulched you would have had a mess and also needed to double cut at least.

    they make gaskets sealers for those gearboxes i'd just go that route I think 30-50 is what they run for a kit. You shouldnt have to and i wouldnt replace the whole thing thatd set ya back almost 1k. At 1200 hrs im surprised your having any problems this is just the begining trust me. Id call and check with the dealer in your area about deck sizes im pretty sure there different sizes. hope it helps at all

    All the gear boxes are the same part number. If you don't believe that just look at walkers web site on parts manuals. The only one that is different is the center T box for reverse rotation decks. Better off going with cast iron. You will need to time them to opposite one anouther. Easier to remove the entire assembly from deck to replace just your end box. Refill so top shaft in box is submerged with gear oil. Only listen to walker owners when advice Is needed or given.
