  1. Deck Failure

    Deck shell failed. It cracked around the area where the hub and spindle are located. The decks are cleaned after each mowing and at the end of the season. I can't get a pic to load, says it's too big.

  3. Best Zero Turn Mower

    Looking for some feedback on zero turn mowers. Mowing 1.5 acres that has some gente slops. Looking for quality, something easy to work on. I heard Woods are good ones. However, the are built by outside contract. I also have heard Grasshopper is a quality machine.
  4. OEM or after market parts

    What are the thoughts OEM or after market parts. I use OEM belts. When it comes to blades and filters I have used both. I have bought after market blades and air filters from Cutter's Choice in Erie, PA in the past. There are some good OEM prices on Ebay from time to time. I only recently bought a tractor with an oil filter (315-8). I have only used a Kohler filter.

  11. 314-8 blowing fuses

    My 314-8 is blowing fuses when I try and start it. I was having problems starting it before. My dad took a screw driver to jump to points to start it. Now I'm not sure if he ended up messing up a relay or some other part. I noticed the plug going to key looks a little melted. Not sure If I can check key with volt meter or the plug to the key.

    I'm looking for some info on how to service the PTO Clutch on a 315-8. This is my 1st electric clutch tractor and I was wondering how I remove every thing to grease the bearings.
  15. Has anyone here ever seen a tractor they really like that is not for sale and you made a offer to buy or said if you ever want to sell to give me a call? I saw a really nice one yesterday driving to work. I have passed this house for years. The tractor looked like a 520. Doesn't look like it was used to cut grass and was just pulling a wagon.
