it appears i have done it this time. i have bent the deck on my mower, and it looks like i will have to replace the brackets for it to line up straight. it is a 42" wizzard mower sold bu western auto, and made by mtd. i know this is a cheap mower, but has been very reliable in the past. i mow 5 properties, all about 1/2 acre each, for free. has anyone had any experience in replacing the brackets or the deck. what is the expected cost?
