I have a 1968 John Deere 110 lawnmower with a 38" deck and a 1976 John Deere 112H (electric-hydraulic deck lift) with a 42" deck and I'd like to build a 60" deck that will fit on one or the other or both. I recently had the opportunity to study the deck attachments on a new John Deere 130 and am impressed with the easier quick-tach attachment points on the new mower.
Does anyone have experience building this type of thing? I'm guessing I'll need to use at least 11ga sheet for the deck and reinforce it with a minimum of 1/8" cold-rolled strip and use 1/8" angle for the attachment points.
Does anyone have any ideas for places to buy guidewheels and that sort of thing for mower decks? I plan on buying the pulleys and belts from my local Tractor Supply Co store and I'm going to need new front tires and new rear tires for both mowers and I suppose I'll try to get those from the TSC too.
Any and all suggestions would be welcome.
