A few weeks ago I found a used front mount thatcher and extensions. It had been on a GT 345 and lacked the springs. I’m no fabricator. I messed around a bit and finally caved and ordered the LP48005 adaptor kit for the 300 and 500 series. I kept surfing the web and tinkering. As luck would have it my order got lost in computer changes when the dealership changed hands. I’ve found a few more photos and video that have convinced me the $219 kit is not required. I’m $12.77 on the mounting so far. The lift handle or hydraulic is the next hurdle. I’m moving the handle to the left side. I’ll thumbnail some of my research photos. Any suggestions are appreciated.
