Tend to be a bit aggressive with my 917.255919 and once in awhile an errant branch will get kicked into the mule drive, throwing the belt off. Anyone built a guard for that area?

Not anything I have ever thought about but shouldn't be too hard to do.

I have not needed to protect the mule drive, but if you can get a bumper you might be able to add a lower bar to it. Would be cool to make one look like an old fashion train cow catcher.

Good idea. Thinking a skid plate type arrangement to force the brush etc down would be a good addition.

? though. Where are the attachment points for the bumper, asked w/o going out to check first. Extra holes need to be drilled?

Thanks Larry

I can get some pictures of Hulk II's bumper attachment this evening.

There are two holes in the front sides of the frame. One is higher than the other. See below:

Hear ya on the concrete floor.  There's frost on the lawn here right now.

Thanks for the photo.  Don't recall seeing those frame holes, will check tomorrow.

Looks like a can-do setup. Skid plate all the way back to just past axle should do it.

Stay warm.

Thanks
