Hi,
I wonder if anyone could tell me about the underside of an old 48" cutting deck.
It looks like someone has welded a strip of metal that follows the two front blade arcs to the underside of my deck.
Was this an original design?
Cheers

Yes, exactly!
Was this original or has it been an afterthought to improve cutting?

Safe to say that they are original. Those curved pieces are baffles that direct the grass to the outside of the deck.

:ditto: Without them it probably would tend to windrow some cut grass in the center out the back. Unless your planning on returning to the lawn later with a hay baler, that would not good. ;)

Does anyone have dimensioned specs for a left hand engine air deflector?
Too hard to come by in AU's but would surely save me a lot of time in making one!
