What Jd Blades Can Do
Posted July 27, 2012 - 08:44 PM
I got my replacement today. Foam filled assembly complete with needle roller bearings. No more flats on this side of the deck. $113 w/shipping, but still cheaper than OE John Deere, and built to JD specs.
Oh, and the blades were not damaged at all!

BTW, My first thought was "Geez, I know he's out of practice mowing, but wow..."

Funny how things like that can happen.Did that with my massey mower when I first got it.Can you belive that all they had holding the pivioting wheel on was a snap ring.Guess the ring let go and the wheel went underneath and out the chute.Sure made lots of noise it also didn't do any damage to blades or the deck either.The wheel just had a chunk taken out [solid wheel] and the part that holds the wheel had a chip.Needless to say I changed how they are held on.I still kept the snap ring but also put a 1/2" bolt in from the underside just incase the snap ring let go. Yeah the blades are pretty tough stuff. Me and the little guy looked about a hour untill we found the wheel across the road in the other ditch.I was on a trail along the road with 15 feet of bush between me and the road never figured it to have gone across the road.Good thing there was no traffic at the time.Larry.
