    I have a 42 inch deck that won't fit through gates. The body of my lawn mower does though. I was wondering what i can do besides for getting a new mower. I saw this one thing where the tips of the deck detatch does anybody know any info on that and what i should do

    Dixie Chopper Makes That Device,
    I would recommend against making a similar mechanism Unless,
    1. You don't mind taking a saw to your deck:rolleyes:
    2.You are not at all concerned with safety
    3. You know a fab shop nearby

    if you are talkin 30 inch gate ,i dont think so. if its 36 then its a pain but you can pick up one side of the mower and shimey it thru.
    be sure to lean the oil away from the carburator.good luck TM
