Hello from Belgium

Recommended Posts

Hi Im Vincent, i'm 27yo and i breed roses for a living.

 

Since a few days i'm the proud owner of a wheel horse 800 3speed.

Originally i was planning on restoring it to factory fresh conditions, but then when i went to see it, it was a lot nicer than i expected and as i'm a big fan of "justified" patina i think i'll leave it as it is, and just source a good mowing deck.

 

pics as it stands

So now i'm searching for a deck, if anyone can point me in the right direction it'd be much appreciated

Hello from Luxembourg, but why nobody live closer to me? :)

Your tractor has the attach-o-matic system for the deck. There in Belgium isn't it that hard to find a deck for it. Make an annonce on www.2iememain.be . Lots of wheel Horse are there also some whit horizontal engineshaft. I recently bought one close to Namur. But often you have to weld the decks... Probabliy you have to search for a max 42inch deck or less a 48inch will be to big... don't forget to get the muledrive , the pully in the front,and the belt. They are as hard to find as the deck, sou you can save time an often you can get it for free when you buy the deck.

Hiya guys, yesterday i mowed my lawn for the first time with the WH.

Which means i found myselve a nice 42" rear discharge deck and a brand spankers mule drive directly from toro in Oevel.

 

The only problem i have now is that the blades on the "new" deck are worn (ie too short), because when i'm mowing it leaves 2 rows of uncut grass between the blades.

 

Now i'm a bit undecisive on which blades to buy; do i get the gator blades, or just go with the normal cutting blades?

Everyone is raving about the gator blades being realy good, but the problem i have with mulching is that i frequently don't have the time to cut the grass, so sometimes it gets "a bit" long, and i think the mulching blades will struggle to eject the clippings in time.

 

Any advice from you guys is much welcomed.

 

I'll post some pics of the deck etc asap :)
