Frequently Asked Questions About This Product

Why is my mower leaving a trail of grass on the right hand side?
Answer

The issue is probably the amount of material that is being cut. The blades turn counter clockwise, so if you try to cut more material than the unit can handle, you will have a windrow of material build up on the right hand side.

What is needed to set my FDR series mower for mulching?
Answer

A set of mulching blades, no other attachments or equipment is required.

What do I need to replace my gauge wheel assembly air tire with a solid tire?
Answer

You will need the solid rubber tire (814-493C), two gauge wheel spacers (310-329D) and one spacer tube (310-328D) per gauge wheel assembly.

What could be causing the hub on my spindles to break?
Answer

Impact damage with foreign objects or the ground can cause the spindle housing/hub to break or blow apart.

Should the front of the mower run lower than the rear?
Answer

Yes. The grass is cut on the front side of the mower and not at the rear. This leaves a better and more consistent cut and aides in better material distribution.

My lower 3-point arms will not attach to the lower hitch points, how can I make it work?
Answer

The lower hitch points are designed to be adjustable. They adjust in and out for many tractor configurations. There are 2 bolts that hold the hitch plates in place, on is solid while the other one allows the hitch plates to pivot up and down for easier attachment.

How do you set the belt tension on this mower?
Answer

The belt tension is set with a spring and an eyebolt. Tighten or shorten the eyebolt to increase belt tension or loosen or lengthen the bolt to relieve tension. The correct tension is achieved when pressure is applied to the center of the longest run and belt is able to be pressed in about ½” from static position.

How do I remove the blades?
Answer

The blade bolts are rh threads and the best way to remove them is by using an air ratchet or gun. If that is not an option, you need to lock the blade in place with a block of wood. When reinstalling the blades, tighten the blade bolt to 55 lbs.

How do I remove the blade hub from my spindle assembly?
Answer

The blade hub is threaded onto the spindle shaft with right hand threads. It is not pressed onto the shaft. The hub will need to be removed in a counter clockwise fashion.

Do I leave my lower arm of the tractor in float when the mower is in use?
Answer

You can, but there is already some float built into the lower lugs of the unit.
