    DIY Mower Deck Moving & Storage Wheels

    I saw the mower deck wheels and axles kit you can buy but wanted castering wheels to make it easier to move around and put it right where you want it. I spent $20 on steel tubing, another $20 on 5" caster wheels and about $8 in bolts, nuts and washers. Tried it for the first time today, works great. Now just need to clean them up and paint them. I bought this tractor with 75 hrs on it a few weeks ago. Clearly the blades have never been off and sharpened. It's almost hard to tell which is the front vs back of the blades they are so bad. Having a stand like this will make it much easier to work on the mower deck.

    How wide?

    This project has been on my "List" of projects to convert from my 455 to my 1025.

    I know I can probably figure it our but how wide did you make the axles?

    Thanks.

    I viewed some pictures of axle stands that would work for me, but no one was selling anything close to what I wanted so I used some 1" cold roll, drill press and stem casters to make a set . Worked do hood I made an extra set to sell on eBay. Maybe recover the cost of the project. Works great.

    Nice job. Did the 1" cold roll fit w/o needing to be turned down? Any issues with the "axle" moving side to side while the deck is being rolled around?

    The 1" cold roll fit very nice without turning. I drilled a 3/8 pilot hole that the gauge height spring loaded pin fits into. Keeps the shaft from shifting from side to side or turning in the tower. Caster would turn upside down without the pin hole. Cold roll is 18" long with caster stem holes drilled 1" from the end. This works for the auto connect 60D deck. The angle of the pilot hole for the gauge pin is important- other decks may have a different pin location or angle.
