Rough day today, while mowing with RED the deck support link broke and the deck started dragging the ground. Went to the shop to get a strap so I could bring RED back. Link is NLA at Sears but I found one at another site and ordered it.
I was thinking of putting the deck on Hulk II to finish up the back yard, but I was hot and sweaty and didn't feel like the extra work. Old Girl was already wearing a deck, so she finished up the yard. First real time mowing with her. (Forgive the video, a hyper-active 10 year old on a trampoline recorded it) I am amazed how quiet the custom muffler is.
After cleaning both of them up. I will need to drop Old Girl's deck and tighten up the outer bearings, they have some play in them. I pulled about 30 lbs of clippings from under RED's deck. Wonder if that weight had anything to do with it. Greased them and blew all the clippings off.
I'll install Hulk II's deck this evening so He will pick up mowing till I get RED Fixed.
