My Cub Cadet mower deck is almost restored , but the wooden roller on the front is worn and rather beat up . I would like to replace it with one of like material but don't have a clue as to the type of wood it's made of . I was thinking that a piece of rock hard maple would work and last awhile . Any help would be appreciated . I've included two pictures of progress so far . It's all powdercoat . The baffle on the bottom, around the blades, is almost finished . I still have to weld the three parts together as well as attach the angles to bolt it to the deck then it's off to the powdercoater .
Next will be to finish the snowthrower . Most of it is powdercoated . Just needs to be assembled . Love these old Cubs !
