Some of you may or may not have seen my post about the broken gauge wheel on my deck. Well, Steve stepped up and said he might have some wheels on a parts deck. He had some that are the same as the other ones and he shipped them up to me! They arrived today, good thing too. the one was starting to break apart even more and was on its last leg!

The old wheels on top, the ones from Steve are on the bottom. He also sent the bolts, and was nice enough to put new nuts and lock washers on them!

Here are some pics after I put them on.

Listen to these guys Steve! They are all right!

I just finished mowing my neighbors, 3 acres and they seem to be working perfectly! The first thing I noticed with these wheels... that squeak went away! LOL!

Ryan, if I were a betting man, I'd say the bolts got wire brushed and the threads chased before it went to the post office.

Thanks Steve, proud to call you friend.

Yes, I think so too! When I opened the box I thought the bolt heads and shafts looked clean! I was just so excited that they had got here so fast! When I opened the box I also thought they looked different then they did in the pics he sent me, I couldn't put my finger on it until I read your post. He degreased them! DUH! I posted the pics he sent me in a PM so you can see what they looked like before.

Glad you are back up and running!
Thanks Steve! Thats another reason why I love this Forum, People go out of their way to help one another.
Was there any numbers on the wheels? Are replacements available?

I didn't see any numbers on them. I doubt that Toro still makes them, I would think the only chance of getting "new" ones would be NOS.

Aw shucks guys. I just knew that Ryan wouldn't be able to continue helping others unless someone helped him. I appreciate the accolades, but they're not necessary. I'm just glad that I could help. I'm also glad that they worked out for you Ryan and hope that they hold up for a long, long time! BTW, I'm amazed at how quickly they got there too. Way to go USPS!
