Hello all! I’m looking to get my mower deck ready for the spring, and I’m trying to figure out everything I would need to get it up to snuff. It’s a model 483U-1111. I am picking up a mule drive and carriage this weekend (thanks KHarvey!), what else do I need to get it 100%? I plan on replacing the rear wheel brackets and wheels.

It looks rough, but I hope it will get me through summer so I can rebuild it this upcoming winter.


Also, is this even the correct deck? This is what I was given when I bought my 149.


Thanks in advance!

Kyle Vick

It looks like the deck that came with my 149.

Check the spindles for smooth rotation. You should probably remove the spindle belt and check them individually. Grease the spindles. Try to wiggle the blades/spindles to check for bearing wear. Inspect the drive belt and spindle belt and pulleys. Check the blades. Sharpen the blades. Check the tensioner spring for wear, tension, and operation.
