Ok who hasn't done this .and won't tell.
After mowing the field last evening, decided I should clean the deck and under the pulleys.
Removed the deck , stood the deck up and scraped the old grass out from under the deck. Then I decide I may as well remove the blades and sharpen them .. Removed the blades , used the 4" grinder with flap disk and sharpened the blades. While the deck is standing up, cleaned the grass out from under the pulleys , glad I did found a 3/4" gravel under the middle back pulley and the belt. I also greased the deck before putting the blades on.
So before putting the blades on , took 1 scoop shovel of grass outside. Came back in to take the second shovel and I see 1 washer from blades.
$hit where are the other washers and the 3 bolts...
Outside I go to look in the pile of grass I had thrown away. Didn't find them outside, came inside and spent 10 more minutes finding all washers and bolts.
So who has removed the bolts and washers , and instead of laying them out of the way, lay them on the bottom inside of the deck . Then after cleaning the deck, sweep that grass on to the floor and get them mixed up in the pile of cut grass ..
