Belly-Mounted Mower Deck Converted To 3-Pt. Model
To solve the problem he turned the deck’s gearbox 180 degrees, then made a new pto shaft by taking one off an old bush hog mower. He kept the yoke and U-joint from the mower’s original pto shaft and made adapters for them. He also bolted the 3-pt. lifting mechanism from a one-row cultivator to the caster wheel supporting frame on top of the deck.
“The conversion turned it into a great, economical finish mower,” says Simpler. “I use it to cut grass for a local hunting club that has a big lawn. The deck’s caster wheels and anti scalping rollers keep the lawn looking really nice.”
