After grinding and getting the first mow on them I notice the cut is not getting all the grass . It looks great but there are a few more stragglers than I would like . Friday I lowered the rear roller with the shims tipping the bedknive angle down in front should get me a more aggressive cut . I tried it out and was cutting more grass just after they mowed it . Coring greens on Monday . Seasons winding down.

Started grinding the first unit on Tuesday , ready to cut for Wednesdays mow . Today when they came in I started on the other . Noticed the bearings where a little loose and when I went to adjust them ( by feel no inch pounds torque wrench )the 1 3/8 nut moved a good 3/4 of a turn before it contacted anything . I snugged them till I felt a very slight resistance in the reel . Did get over half way done grinding on this one today . Also the 4300 D had a note on the board about a the center deck had lost a side pivot pin , the locking collar was still there and didn't even look welded . Found a tow pin with the same diameter to repair it .

Cut down and shape some heavy plate steel
The original metal stock looks like a lift arm from an old 60" deck gravely.
Drilled a couple of holes and bolt in place
Piece of cake to do two jobs at once .
Worked great at the time and may be going back to this again this year when we triplex. You guys out there in the market for triplexes spend the extra few bucks and get the Toro Tri Flex . We demoed one and it is an awesome machine . You won't get the clean up cut ring around the green .
