:wave: Jeff  .....I know you from the RRT.

 

Those deflectors have always been a P.I.T.A., but they were required to meet industry safety standards.  ....They create more problems than they solved.

A heavy rubber flap would work better.

There are places in my yard that it will not go with it installed so off it must come,it will get thrown in the rafters and might go back on a tractor if I restore one but no more for use in my yard.

The deck I had it on had a caution sticker on it so there are room for stickers.

I have a cousin that does.  :wallbanging:

 

Tried to clear a blockage with the deck running back in the '70s.

Doc's sewed the fingers he lost back on pretty good.....

At least he doesn't have any trouble holding a beer can.  :(
