    Hello all-I'm new 2 this forum and find it very informative. I have an 1995 made Yard Pro-w-50" deck & 14hp Kawasaki. The original stamped deck rusted out completely so I fabricated a new deck out of 3/16" CRS. I also wanted to replace the spindle bearings and got a price of $26.00 PER BEARING! For anyone interested I did a little research and it turns out these are typical bearings used in boat trailers and I bought all six for $4.00/ea!
    Anyone-w-other money saving tips for parts for these super protected units? I can also use a service manual if anyone might have a resource-I called Ariens and the only thing they have is the Owners/parts manuals-good for free off web site.
