    Installation Question

    On the 60" MMM, Regarding the difficulty of lifting the very heavy deck (over 200 lbs) long enough to install the wheels, does anyone know is it possible to install the wheel axle kit while its on the tractor, disconnect and drive off of it, and lift the deck to the vertical position? Or does it have to be off the tractor first?

    I'd say no, although I don't have a 60d or any over "drive over" deck.
    All I ever did was to lift the rear and slide a piece of 6x6 timber under it, swapped the anti-scalp wheels for the axles, lifted again and kicked the 6x6 out, walked around to the other side and lifted the deck vertical. Heavy yes-but manageable for me, and done in under 5 minutes.
