Hi guys,

I would like to raise the deflectors on both my X310 and X320 mowers when I'm not mower and the tractors are inside. Besides using bungee cords because I think that's pretty tacky is there a cool way of doing this, some sort of bracket that's made to hold the deflectors up and out of the way?

How about wing nuts on the attachment bolts? I know you JD types like to wash your deflectors in the dish washer. :thumbs:  :D

Makes em last longer. I use Cascade dish washing liquid for less hard water residue left behind. :thumbs: :rolling:

 

I got it figured out I know what to do now about lifting the deflectors. I missed it and I just went out to look at it again and the X310 has a built in bracket to hold the deflector up but the X320 does not and I have that figured out now too. Thanks for the help LilysDad.

Me too so I use bailing twine instead :bigrofl:   :bigrofl:

 

Seriously though, I would be interested on what you come up with.

Sure bud, no sweat. Like I stated above the X310's deck deflector is okay it's the X320's deflector I need to do something about. It involves the rear anti scalping wheel on the deflector side and a short piece of PVC pipe - not too long that it won't fit in the under the seat tool box.

Sorry it took me so long but I've been very busy. Here ya go guys. I cut a piece of 3/4" PVC pipe and made it 8" long to fit in the under the seat toolbox. Since I didn't want to leave it the PVC white I painted it John Deere Yellow to match the mower deck. This should really do the trick for now.
