    Deck Dolly

    I have a 1yr old 1025r w/ 60" mower deck.
    Does anyone have a deck dolly for theirs? I'm looking at getting one through deck dolly and want to hear about peoples experience with dealing with the company and the product itself.
    Thanks everyone,
    Travis

    There are a few threads about them (found with the google search feature in the upper right corner), I hope this link works:

    Also be sure to check out Larry's Mower Axles, not only are they a forum sponsor, they are a bit cheaper and easier to store in the off-season.

    I have one bought it two months ago. Good product, shipped fast. Little expensive along with shipping. It works great I like better than the wheel stands. It is a little heavy up until you get it to the wheel barrow stage to move, then up all the way to have it vertical. I would buy again if need be.

    I looked at the Deck Dolly and the Mower Axles. After much thought I bought the Deck Dolly for these reasons.
    Ease of attaching:
    Mower Axles the deck needs to be lifted with the FEL two gage wheels removed and then install the axles.
    Deck Dolly you just drop the deck anywhere, lay the dolly on it and insert the rod. Pick it up by hand and move anywhere.
    Maneuverability:
    Mower Axles there are four wheels and none of them swivel.
    Deck Dolly two wheels on a cart that you can easily maneuver like any other two wheel dolly. ( Do wish the wheels were a little larger )
    Stability:
    Mower Axles they recommend attaching to a wall for safety.
    Deck Dolly is very stable. I can put it anywhere without worrying about it being bumped and falling over.

    I appreciate that Mower Axles is a sponsor but when I thought it through I had to go with the Deck Dolly. Very happy with the product. When I got it the brackets were for a 54" deck and I have the 60". Sent them an email and my correct brackets were here in two days.

    Just my humble two cents worth.

    Did you pay extra for the longer legs or just have the one right off of deck dolly's website?

    I thought that storing the mower deck vertically allowed the gearbox oil to drain out. Is there a particular vertical orientation of the deck that prevents that from happening? I see the deck dolly has the front of the deck in the up position.

    I made my own mower deck stand but its time for the nice one from deck dolly. The one I made stood up the same way. I had it upright on the stand all winter and it never leaked.

    I've had my 54" deck stored on a Deck Dolly for the last 2 winters and never any leaks. After reading of some others having that problem here I checked the level in mine this time before putting it back on the tractor and it was full. Don't understand why some have the problem and some don't.
    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    If there was a leakage issue, wouldn't an easy "fix" be to swap the breather with a plug during storage?
