I am not sure if I have introduced my HT23 on here before. I bought the tractor in 2009 and I mainly use it for grass cutting duties

Last year I lifted the deck and one of the deck lift bolts broke, I then managed to rip up the wood threshold on the door of my workshop trying to drive it in with the deck dragging on the ground. I have been a bit busy so it has taken me until now to get around to fixing it.

First I remove the old lift bolts, looks like someone has been here before as they should not be made out of M12 threaded rod

I then pulled one off my HT20 so I could see what they should look like

I then made some replacement parts

then I made a quick frame to hold the parts in place for welding

I even gave them a quick coat of paint before fitting

I can't believe what a difference it makes, the deck lift has never been this good. Another job done.

Your grass is nearly bald Iain

Too mutch seat time it seems :thumbs:
I wish that was true, I have only cut it three times this year and the deck is set much higher than normal. I am sure a bit of rain would help, we have not really had any for a long time. I will have to get Joseph out with the watering can :D
