Ouch! Always seems to get them in the end Sad

It’s (pleasantly) surprising that this sort of thing doesn’t result in some nasty accidents!
 Three very nice FL2’s and two superb Disco 4’s to date.
With them both sadly out of production and a new car needed at short notice, I bought LR’s nearest new equivalent - a FFRR 😋

Occasionally, you see mower decks on the bEay. Don't know why they get separated from their mowers, but you might find one.

If it’s anything like the last one it happened to me on, the structural integrity of that plate is so important that the belts couldn’t be tightened anymore. I’d suggest replacing the deck entirely if it’s still available.

That wasn’t possible for ours, so we removed the base and sold it as a perfectly good lawn tractor and put that money towards a new mower.

It's a bit far gone to weld , I'll get a deck new or second hand and get it sorted and might have a look at new mowers at the royal cornwall show in a few weeks Very Happy

I decided a couple of years back that my Countax deck was a bit past it so got a 2nd hand one and clean it up.

This is when I'd just dropped the deck off. When I tried to move it, it effectively fell apart.
