Default Re: Lawn tractors

Quick update. The Jacobsen is running excellent and does a great job. The 4x4 comes in handy when climbing. I had the guards on the mower deck but took them off as the middle portion of the deck tends to shoot grass under the covers and clog up the outer deck belt pulleys causing the belts to slip and stop the outer blades from turning.

One issue I'm having is with the hydraulics for the deck lift mechanism. All the other hydraulics work perfectly fine but the deck won't raise and lower. Could it be a disconnected hose? Blown hydraulic cylinder? Other?

Just for reference, here's the property overhead shot.

Canadian eh!!!
The trouble with renting is the machine is never around when you need it.
