    There is a lot of wildlife here in the Big Woods. I totally respect all the critters as like you say they were here first. Our dog is only allowed to run around during the full daylight hours - any other time he goes out he is tied. We see deer and elk every evening/morning from the house and see new bear sign almost every day also.

    Jake is only allowed to chase red squirrels and chipmunks. Have to keep them back away from the house. It's either him or my .22.

    Installed the front Quick Hitch bracket and in the process fixed my squeak. Before tightening down the bolts I wedged a wood shim between the bracket and tie rod on both sides.

    So now the tie rod isn't rubbing the bracket.

    The gap on mine may only be a sixteenth to an eighth larger than yours and it has never been disturbed from the factory.
    You may want to have a look at the pivot section in the center of the front axle and see if any tightening or adjusting could bring the axle rearward any.
    Also if you have a belly mower you may need to readjust the level now that you have changed the position of the front hanger.

    Wow! My 2019 1025R has about 3/4" (0.750") gap between the bracket and tie rod there. Either they have made some changes on the 2019 1-Series, or your tie rod, tie rod end is bent, or something else is misaligned somehow.

    If yours is that close too I guess it's normal.

    I planned to check the mower deck connection to that bracket and adjust as needed, but hadn't thought to verify it was still level. Thanks.

    Stuck In The Mud

    This week I mowed the field/pond area. I was almost done, there is usually a really soft muddy wet spot that I leave if not safe to mow. So I said, one more pass on the edge and I'm done..... yeah sure. Down I went into the mud. But nothing a couple of tow straps, a length of chain, a truck and a good woman to help can't fix. She said I probably wanted to get stuck just for the fun of pulling it out, she might be partly right. Oh, and a good pressure washer to get that stink off the wheels and underside.

    It’s that “just one more pass” which will get you every time!

    Thanks for sharing the pics! I never have a camera in my pocket so never get good pics like that.

    I just got a text from a neighbor that was "HELP, I am stuck in the creek along the river." Then he proceeded to say, "Don't worry if you can't get to it right away because its not going to be stolen, as its where no one can get to it."

    I asked him to send me a picture so I could tell on his property where it was stuck. He sent me these photos of the mower stuck. The other photos are of his property from earlier. The mower was stuck at the bottom of the hill straight down from the retaining wall. It's probably a vertical drop of 2 or 3 stories down to the river from the back of his house.

    Getting down there was very sketchy as the hill is very steep and also has a side angle to it. I have to be honest, I wasn't crazy about taking my tractor down there, but I put it in 4wd, lowered the bucket down low, lowered the 3 point carry all down and went very slowly. Had I not recently added the 6" of rear wheel spacers, I wouldn't have gone down the hill.

    When I got down there, I let him hook up the straps as I didn't want to break his mower in two. In the end, I lifted it straight up and then backed up and set it down out of the mud and creek.

    The entire mower doesn't weigh much, that's for sure maybe 500 or 600 pounds from the way it lifted. I did tell him to be careful firing up the deck after having sunken it in the mud and likely plugging the underside of the deck with mud and crud......I was so concerned about how he was hooking up the straps, that I forgot to take actual "retrieval pictures" of lifting it out of the mud......Next time...

    I gave him two 36" long axle straps and he went around each front corner and then I hooked another strap with the threaded links to the strap on each corner and across my KBOH bucket hooks and just lifted it straight up. I thought that would be better than "yanking it" out of the mud with the deck buried on the back side. The length of the straps worked out perfectly......

    That's the advantage of having an inventory of the straps from Kenny...... That's the third time in a week I have used the straps for something tractor related.

    I told him we could take it up near his driveway and tip it up with the FEL so he could power wash the underside of it. But he had enough for today and decided it was time to quit after being pulled out so on home I went....................Good deed completed for the day.
