Removing C 3 Mower

Postby wrz » Fri Feb 18, 2022 11:27 pm

The easy way to remove a C 3 mower is to use a sky hook.

I think when I removed the one that was on mine (PERMANENTLY) when I bought it, I just set some blocks under the deck and backed the tractor up, driving over the deck!

I like to use my Cherry Picker (Engine Hoist) to remove mowers. We do not have an A-Frame (Sky Hook)

Likes Samsfarm, l just use 2x6 planks as ramps and drive on and off my deck. Yes you do have to block/secure the mower deck to do this, but much easier than wrestling by hand at my age.
Why is there never enough time to do the job right, but always enough time to do it over. :?:

I use planks and drive over the mower deck on my C 2 mower but on the C 3 the the two outer spindles are in the way of the inside width of the tire spacing on this tractor.
