    Is there a warranty on these decks ? Just very upset that I have to spot weld around all the pulleys. There are rust thru spots all around the pulleys. a new deck cost over $1300.Not looking to spend quite that much

    How old is your mower? Decks will rust through, especially in wet conditions. Consider having a welding shop form and weld a large sheet of metal onto the underside of the deck to deal with the rusty spots. I am assuming its rusting from the underside to the outside right? If you cover enough of the deck with new metal, it should be almost as good as a new deck.

    Well, the decks have 1 or 2 year warranties and that is that. I assume you are well past 2 years in age right?
    The SFS decks really aren't bad decks. But they don't compare in any way to the new TF decks.
