    Need Advice: Broken Mower Deck

    Hi AllÖ

    A piece of my mower deck sheared off at the weld joint today. As the picture shows, there is a lip thatfits into a slot on the mower deck and then there is the weld joint.

    My question is, can this be fixed? Ifso, does anyone know of a welder or maybe an auto body shop that might be ableto fix this for a reasonable price? My only other choices would be to buy anentire new mower deck which I canít find because this tractor is 11 years old.Plus it would probably cost $600+. Orto write it off which I donít want to do because the tractor itself is in verygood condition. Runs like new and hasnever failed to start. Itís just themower deck that got hosed.

    I would be grateful for any help or advice.

    Thanks.

    3 Mules Welding can probably provide names if you happen to be close to them (GMR across the street from Curtis Tire).

    Doc or Brian Oliver will send you to Roberts located at the Oliver Farm.
    Robey is Docs son in law.
