I have some properties that have gates and I need a 36" wide mower to get into. Currently The smallest I have is a 48". I have 1 extra 48" deck and 2 extra 52" decks. Has anyone ever tried to cut off 1/3 of a deck and weld it back together? It's either that or sell the 48" and buy a 36". I've done a good deal of welding before but Its hard to say how long this would take.
