Wood 59 Mower

Tue Aug 17, 2004 10:19 pm

The casters I got with the mower lay the grass down before it gets cut. I have the high suction blades but the grass doesn't have enough time to rebound. Today I sandwiched the casters between the outside of the mower deck and the skids. This puts the casters about 63" apart instead of about 30".
I'm wondering if anyone else has done this and if there're any drawbacks :?: :?:

My casters are just inside the skids on the front edge of the mower deck...

I just noticed, on this page, http://www.cngco.com/woods.html, that the L59 Mower Deck I have mounted on my Cub is actually for the Farmall A? It seems to work pretty darn good, though... Am I overstressing my Cub or something?

Can't find pic...

I can't seem to find a picture of the L59 online with wheels on it... Mine must be add-ons, although they look like part of the original deck, so they must be optional equipment?

I need to do a search to find out the difference between the Woods 59, L59, C59, all that stuff...

Castors are an option for the L59 decks, and are quite handy to help prevent scalping. Likewise the high suction blades are an option and provide higher airflow to lift the grass better.

I have two rather large casters on my L59. They definitely help rolling over those soft hills in the yard. Mine are mounted in line with the support mounting rails on the front.
