I really hope to get it mowing soon...
 

 
Why will I need lots of weights?  I will just be using it for mowing duty for now... If I want to plow I don't think it'll need too many...


Oh, I was just saying that Most of us would be tempted (in spite of what we may say) to plow with it some... Weightless turfs will be a negative here, so I was just warning you to watch for weights.

Oh, and chains...

Or Ags. LOL.
Just teasing bud.

My collar came today.  Mowed for about 75ft then started slipping again.  I'm going to go get a gearbox soon.  Other than that I did a little work with the 10XL today and wired in a "Battery Tender".  Doesn't even look like it's there when it's tucked away.

Dane, what's slipping?

 

There is a collar between the splined shaft and 90 degree gearbox on the mowing deck.  The shaft going into the gearbox is rounded at the tip and near the box so it slips when engaged.  I need to find another gearbox.

I haven't had the welder out for quite a while, so I decided to get it out and make something useful.  I made a carry-all and because of the trickle-charger system, I could use my sprayer; so I got a little of that done today.  It is really sturdy.  I put 250 lbs on it and it didn't complain.  I could also stand on it and jump.

If you have the old collar still, ie seen guys weld the gearbox end to the collar or thru pin it. That way you aren't buggering up the good parts, and it doesn't slip.

Check with BHTS, I think he had a line on some boxes (be specific on RH or LH box) and spline collars.

I'm just going to weld it tomorrow morning so that I can mow before my sister's party.

Well, it mowed long enough to get the yard mowed...  I think I'm going to be ordering a bunch of new parts or getting a different deck. 

 

I cleaned up the deck so that it would be nicer to work on... I HATE grass goo on my hands...

 

I also extended my carry-all so that I could carry the deck, tables, and carry a cooler down to the fire for my sister's party. 

 

The Sears got used a lot today.  A lot of firewood was hauled, grass mowed, items transported, etc...  I even used the carry-all as a table!  (I'll get pics of this tomorrow...)

Dane, glad the mower deck held up for you for a while. What's wrong now?



Oh, and has anyone else noticed this: he keeps saying he did this or that with the 10xl, but in the pics, it's always his sister driving? Looks like she's doing all the work.
:poke: LOL

Tell her we said Happy Birthday too. (I assume that's why you're having a party)

Boy, it sure looks it.
Do you have any dimensionals on it? Does it go up and down with the lift?
