Sorry about the damage, hope it bends back OK.

Isn't that a big surprise when the deck catches on something you've passed over a hundred times before! The damage doesn't look too bad, hope it comes back together for you easily!

ive got it on my xmas list kenny lol
now to get the kid beefed up to swing it.

i pulled the deck it looks better from the botom. a lil persuasion and it should be as good as new used lol.

i have another problem though, the grass is sticking to the bottom of the deck. is it that theres not enough lift to the blades, it realy doesnt blow the grass out from under the deck it maby will blow it a foot out to the side. i know the bend on the blades make the lift and theres not a whole lot of angle to them. is there a set of blades that have a bigger angle to them that will fit the deck?

thanks for reading my post and thanks for any imput ya all could give me.
