I'm going to reserve this thread for my newbie questions. (I bet this won't be the last!)

 

#1. To start - I have an '89 3014 w/ a RM44 mower deck. What is the easiest way to get the deck underneath the tractor?

 

#2. Does anyone have a part number and a cheap source for the 15 1/4" mower blades?

 

Rich

Answer to number one: 

Take two pieces of wood, and use them as makeshift ramps to drive over the deck.

Not sure there is an "approved" method, maybe in a manual. But hey, if it works, then its a solution in my eyes.

 

 

 

You sayed easiest, not approved, i cant think of an easier way to do it than thatf

Just make sure deck wheels on back are up. That is what most of us do. Block and drive over. There not tin decks.

I lift the front of the tractor and slide the deck in from the side. I don't trust driving over any decks. Good Luck, Rick

Okay!

 

Next question . . . I'm looking for blades, #C31571, some places have discontinued them, other places want $22 a piece.  The place I'm going to order want $63 + plus shipping. Are Ingersoll blades going away?

I doubt it but you never know. I use either Salem power in Michigan or Casegardentractorparts.com. Brian at Salem is great and will answer any questions you have.

It really comes down to how hard you want to work your self getting the deck on and off. If you have the wheels on front too do it in the grass. And as far as damaging the deck I've only heard one guy whining it damaged his new paint job on the deck. As long as you go slow and take your time you'll be fine. If you don't have hoist to lift front you would have to take quick connect off and mine is bolted be a pia for me. Hears a little tid bit a very reputable dealer mentioned above suggest to customers use the ramp method.

Oregon discontinued them and Jacks only had a couple of numbers.

 

I lifted the right front tire and got the mower under. Once I attached the lift links, the rest of it went pretty easy.

Salem power is an actual Ingersoll dealer. Factory parts are not all that unreasonable on price. Some things are high but their consumables are fair. I also recommend Ingersoll belts. You'll get only Ingersoll from them. Not Oregon. I'm guessing jacks is also dealing with Oregon.

Eastman industries now owns the Ingersoll line and still supplies parts. Heck, I think they still sell tractors. You can get all your parts manuals for download here.

I went on the Salem web site today, to order blades. I filled out the order and hit Paypal. The thing went nuts and said "502 Bad Gateway" Now I can't get back on the website and I don't know if I bought the blades or not.

     I had an issue with Casegardentractorparts. His site wanted 9.10 per blade​ for shipping. It turns out he only lives 10 miles from me, so I tried to call him. He never answered.

     I gave Salem a try again and their site worked fine this time. The internet saves so many headaches.

 

When Bolens 1000 buys out a Ingersoll dealer, I won't have to screw around anymore.
