    Anybody have experience on how to put a wider set of wheels/tires on a Toro 32" fixed deck mower? They're currently made narrow to fit in narrow gates, but I think you could go a size wider and still get through most gates I have which are more like 36". Items to consider are belt clearance and the limited length of the axle.

    Also, has anybody else just sawed off some of the extended shift lever on these mowers? They stick so far out you'll bang yourself on them.
     
  2. For the shift lever, that was the first thing we cut off when I brough my old toros home.

    there is a bolt on top of the tranny, loosen it take shifter off after you measure, then cut it, put back on and no more knee bangs.
