First question I have is had anyone done this already? If so do you have links to this?

Second I believe it can be done. But is it worth it?

Here is my problem:
  • I have 15 to 30 degree inclines that need to be mowed
  • rear gates in property do not allow anything bigger than the with of my 445 and 42 inch deck
  • I had JD dealer here bring me several models of x300 series and all could not handle hills
  • Gates can not be moved easily and cost is much higher than modding a deck
  • lots of slope and uneven cutting which lends itself to smaller deck which I like in the 42 inch size
  • I need the weight of my 445 for the inclines to mow safely
  • 48 inch decks are out as stated above JD brought several models to my house including x300 series with 48 inch decks
  • I know the 42 inch deck may not cover the entire wheel base of the 445

Fabrication is your only option if you don't want the 48" deck that came with the 4x5 series tractors.
