    54" mmm sliding when trying to connect,disconnect.....

    I have a 2018 1023e with 54mmm. When trying to connect, disconnect, deck slides on concrete floor. I did read up on forums and couldn't find a definite answer on how to solve the problem. Just when my tires hit the edge of the plate welded to the deck the deck slides. I'm thinking of drilling and inserting tapcon (I think that's what their called) bolts into the floor so just the head is sticking out. Then when I hit the deck with the tires it will slide until it hits the bolts and stop sliding. I would put so reference marks on floor so I know i'm where I should be every time. I would put 4 of them in concrete 2 in front of deck and 2 behind deck. They would only be 1/4 to 3/8 high and would just stay there. I would rather change my deck on the concrete because it's flat and smooth. Yes I did have tractor in 4x4. What do you think? Will it work? Thx

    Put it out on the grass and drive up on it. The concrete is too slick and doesnt have any give to it to hold the mower deck. That way you don't have to drill into your concrete cause I've done concrete and no matter if it's an 1/8" hole or a 1" hole, it will crack eventually

    What I did in my garage was put an old rubber pick up bed mat on the floor, the smooth concrete is what appears to giving you headaches.

    Just got a flyer from Tractor Supply today. 3'x4'x1/2" mats are on sale.

    I had the MMM sliding problem in my barn concrete aisle, but it resolved after I laid down rubber mats.

    Be aware that the MMM adjustment instructions assume that the MMM and all 4 tractor tires are resting on the same flat surface. The geometry changes when the MMM is on a thick rubber mat and the tractor tires are on the adjacent concrete floor.

    I have probably attached my mower deck about 100 times......on my asphalt driveway. I'd guess I have a 95% success rate. On the times the deck started slipping it was for several reasons: 1.The asphalt was very wet and it made a slippery surface. 2. One of the height adjustment wheels was not fully released and the deck was not totally on the surface and the deck slipped.(Operator error!) To try to eliminate slippage, I made out of 2 X 4's, two 2 foot long doorstop shaped "deck stops". I put them under the front of the deck before I drive over the deck to attach it. This seems to stop slippage by the deck. It may also work on a concrete surface.

    You might also try backing over the deck in 4WD.

    I have had the deck go completely haywire on me and get sideways on the cement floor.
    I'm too cheap plus don't want to have a mat laying there so I always do the deck on the lawn.
    Usually I am adding or subtracting the loader so I just use my forks to carry the deck back into or out of the garage if I am needing to.
