Rough Mower Repairs

Bermuda grass rough mower.



Here are the bearings and seals for one of the seven decks from the machine that needs to be repaired. To purchase the hubs new are over $250 each. The Mechanics are rebuilding each one of them for a cost of $40 each. Total savings of over $1450



Mower Deck frame; The Mechanics are fabricating shims for the stabilizing bar. The stabilizing bar holds the decks to the tractor unit. We noticed a lot of uneven mowing patterns towards the end of the year. To purchase these new they would cost @$350 each. There are seven on the mower. We are able to modify a fix for less that $50 each. This will last for at least another season.
