Just curious, Looking at the picture of your deck, I noticed the grease spot next to (the left of) where the spring is hooked on top of the deck. Is something dripping down onto the spot to cause that oil or grease looking accumulation right there?:unknown:
Maybe it's just mud. Thought I would point it out.
dont feel bad, I just made a $119 mistake by not raising my Woods rear finish mower high enough while backing up and hooked the caster on the edge of a concrete drainage ditch. Caster and bracket suffered.
If I mowed with my FEL I'd be lucky to have a house standing by the year's end.
