Last year i had a hydraulic steering hose come loose on our John Deere 1025r and it caused me to veer off of the path while i was mowing. I ended up running messing up the two wheels on the right side. the front right wheel support is bent enough that the wheel was pinned against the housing, Additionally the outside edge of the housing is bent just a little but the deck itself is still in alignment. We have used it since but we did have to remove the front right wheel while mowing. If you think this deck scalps bad regularly you should try with only three wheels .
I am sure if i take it to John Deere they will point me to their catalog to buy a new one, i thought about taking it to an auto body to see if they can straighten it.
Has anyone had any luck with fixing this yourself? I did have a crazy third option where i set the deck on the ground, dig a hole under one of the wheels, put the wheel back on, park the tractor on the deck and hook a tow strap up to the wheel and try to pull it straight with my truck. It's the side of the deck with the chute so i think it's a fairly weak point. I figure if the wheels took the stress of bending the deck in the first place then it will probably take the stress of trying to bend it straight.
