Woods 59 Picture

Postby Randy Tuura » Fri Jul 10, 2015 3:04 pm

Hi everyone...
I've always been intrigued by this kind of configuration of the bogey wheels. I really like it. Mower hugs my rough ground, it's fun to watch the bogey wheels and the deflector just looks cool!

But then I started mowing in the trees... we have quite a few.

The previous owner of the place, my Dad, wanted to simulate the black forest. Anyway, after a couple of small mishaps, I'm returning to the original, more common configuration. It's just gotta be safer.

I welded some turned up ends on the mower skids so they wouldn't catch on roots etc when mowing in the woods….I call them elf shoe skids then most know what I'm talking about….Nothing worse than snagging a root …Makes for an abrupt stop…This way it just rolls on over them….I also welded some angle on the deck to help absorb the occasional banging encountered….My wooded area is mostly Locust roots which like to grow near or above the ground….Dave :D….Mine is a Danco 59

Hi Randy. It looks like your mower is missing the skid shoes/plates on each side. Maybe the skids weren't needed with the bogie wheels. I can appreciate the difficulty mowing between the trees. I turned the rear wheels around and extended the front axel in my effort to avoid hitting obstacles with the mower. Now, if the front tires fit between the trees, I don't have to worry about a tree banging the mower. By the way, that's a nice looking cub! Just passing along a thought, good luck, Tom.

The skids are there...check the first photo. Bottom is just in the grass hiding!

Thanks for the compliment. Yeah, the skids are there. Don't seem to be worn at all. It's easy to get them mounted at the wrong height.
