I was trying to organize one of my sheds yesterday and noticed I've accumulated a number of mower decks and am needing some ideas on how to store them til needed. So if you have some good ideas or even better some good pics of good ideas I'm open for suggestions! :thumbs:

I store mine over the winter on edge up against the wall of the garage. I use a ratchet strap around a screw into the stud to hold it up.

I have my extras leaned up against the back wall of the barn. I didn't want them laying on the gravel floor in case any moisture might collect under them.

I have mastered extra mower deck storage in one of my sheds. I built a mower deck rack and can store about 5 high and all the footprint of one mower deck. And better yet I can the any one of them out without touching any other mower deck. I will get a picture of it uploaded when I get home. Right now I have stuff in from of it but from the pic you will get the idea.

I usually hang mine on the walls of my upper garage. They don't take up any floor space that way! I bought some of those storage hooks rated for 200 Lbs. each.

Well, 3 of them are leaning against a tree with a tarp over them. Two others are stacked in the shed. When I remove my main mower deck it will go under the tool bench in the basement for the winter. If you want a real challenge tell me an easy way to store five, no wait, six snowblower attachments.

I have very limited space and I use an enclosed trailer to store my big tractor, so I put 3 mower decks on the floor of the trailer and drive the big tractor over them.

He must still be cleaning a path to get to the rack to get a picture.

I hang mine from the rafters with ratchet straps. Against the unused outside wall is the best place. If any of my sheds were bigger (hgt wise) I could get 2 deep & 2 high in one 4' section.

Mine are stored under my tractors over winter, and the extas go up againt the sidewalls of the trailer. But, these reels do not get moved anywhere, but under a tarp...
