Lots and lots of JB Weld. Probably use the JB Quick and it will go quicker.

That doesn't look so bad, Doug :ok: It's in better than average condition. :thumbs: Wait a minute! Sorry Doug! I had my "GT Hunting Glasses" on. The ones that make me bring home really beat tractors and then spend tons of money and time on them!
Hmmm ... I think it's a gonner Doug. Say the last rights over it and look for a shovel.

Ha ha ha ha ha I just about spit my drink onto the keyboard. You got me on that one. :bigrofl: :bigrofl: :bigrofl: :bigrofl:



I had a woman come to meet me at my work one day. I had met her once and someone told her I fixed up garden tractors. She says to me " You weld, right? I bought a great mower, but I'm not sure about the deck. Can you look at it, it's in the car."

After telling her I didn't weld, I said I'd take a look at her deck. It was almost like that one. I bit my tongue and broke her the bad news that her deck was gone.

Fix it???
Why would you want to do that?
Just hang it under your GT, and drive around the yard, and pretend you're cutting
the lawn. You'll get all the seat time you'll ever want.
It might be a bit tricky trying to hang the deck, but if you invest in a roll of duct tape, you
should be alright.

What ever you do, don't throw it out. It should be hanging on a wall in your shop.

I heard that this yellow deck mounts right on the Executive tractors???
Do you need one?
I could sell it to you, cheap.

Auchdeliber !! How did you keep it from completely falling apart when the camera flash hit it ?
Pull the blade bolts, wood roller, and trailing wheel. Then you can scrap the 3 lbs that are left for maybe 12 cents. :laughingteeth:
