I just bought a new Toro 36 belt driven floating deck. This is my fist mower besides just a small rider and a few push mowers. And on the front of it there is a sold peace of square steel it is just bolted on with two small bolts to the frame. I was wondering what the purpose of this is. I have a 5x10 tilt trailer it is some thing that I have had for my dirt bikes and four wheelers. It is not the best for haling a mower on but I was thinking if I can take off the weight then I can just pop up the front end to make the trailer tilt . So I guess what I am asking is it ok to take off the weight?
