the day i was going to start making my draft arms for the 995 Yardman, i ran across a post on another site which listed a few items i needed.
all of these items are over 15 years old and brand new(except the wheels)....obviously i couldnt pass them up.
the machine is coming along now.

Nice looking stuff.
Is that a 50" mower? I have a 42 for my 990, the big one would be nice.

Nice score on the parts! I love the NOS mower deck...I love the NOS 3 point hitch...And the wheels look awesome too!! I'm not sure what the other part is, but obviously you needed it. Great stuff!

It's always nice to find what you need all in one shot like that. It's really looking great and a 3pt hitch adds a lot of potential.

Nice tractor !! Never knew Yardman made such a large machine , 50" deck gets lot of grass mowed , How to you turn the threaded rods for the lift arms ? Is there some kind of slot at the top ? Thanks , Al

Al, ya have to pull a pin and turn the fitting the threaded rod goes through. cant adjust on the fly like most 3pts.
it kinda sucks but at least it can be adjusted.
thanks for the compliments...this 1 is gonna be a worker ;)

This is my 1992 Yard-Man 995 18 hp, with 50" deck. I need parts for my 3 point and the cradle you showed. You got all that from the same place? Can you point me the right direction so I can get mine ready for some work.  Nice WORK tractor cityboy2977.

thanks Fluid.

unfortunately, these items were not bought from a company, but from a member on another site.

but if you can find a fabrication guy, im sure with the right measurments(which i will gladly give ya) im sure he could make what you need.

nice machine by the way........good luck in your search.

Hi cityboy2977.

 

Im from Denmark and my English is not that good, but I`ll will try to explaine  the best I can.

 

I have a yardman 995 machine, my problem is the deck is so bad, it will fall apart if we use it.. Do you know where I can by a new/old one?

In Denmark is it impossible. I have spoken with mtd manufacturer, and they said they dony make new deck.

So maybe you have an idea where I can get a new 50 "deck along?

It's a really good machine and do not want to just scrap it..

Miss M, welcome to the forum. In your case, I would suggest finding a welding/steel fabrication shop, and ask them for an estimate on repairing or even fabricating you a new deck.

Your English is just fine, by the way.
