On mine, I just used a set of jumper cables and started it with that. Kept them under the tractor seat.

That's a good idea!

Hi that's what I use with my Swisher a set of light wt jumpers works good actually engines with a compression release don't draw real heavy amps when starting. I just ordered some Nema 10-20 heavy duty straight blade electrical plug in's and receptacles these work good can handle the amps

This idea just keeps coming up every time I look at the deck. I have come up with some good trailing wheels for it, ordered the bearings for them today. May become an over the winter project! Give me time to source parts!

I did one a while back using a Ford deck. Worked well as a tow behind.....The part where the engine sits was the front frame of the tractor I got the engine from.

I wanted to use the deck mower to do a hill in front of my house. I had to try and push the mower up the bank, but it turned out to be too heavy. Wouldn't push it up to the top of the hill.

I solved this by building a frame with swivel wheels to mount a push mower on . Not as wide, but works great.

Here's one of the trailing wheels. Carlisle Semi-Pneumatic 13X5.00-6. Hub is 5.5" wide. Takes a standard bearing set for 3/4" axles.DSCN3357.JPG

Ahhh you have a Hemorrhoid too. My Poulan was so bad it is now parked in the weeds the deck is in a pile of other parts. The problem with that deck is the spindles are lousy. I replaced mine every other year because they just fall come apart. Something for you to keep in mind.

These spindles seem to be in good shape and are greasable, so the newer type.

Got the bearings in for the wheels! But you cannot find a 3/4" spindle anywhere! :wallbanging:  Gotta fab something up myself!
