IH Danco C-2 fast hitch mower

Got a project that you are working on that is not a tractor? Maybe a barn to hold your tractors or just fun stuff like woodworking, glass, tools, sheds, gardens, custom implements, etc., this is the place to talk about it.

I’ve been looking at these two decks and decided to use the one I got last week. It has a plate welded on top for strength because there is a crack under it that has been welded. Whoever welded it did a good job. The plate doesn’t bother me after cleaning the rest of the deck up.

The deck that the rest of my mower was attached to is pitted bad in places and also needs some work on it. I’ll take the plate over the pits.

If it’s worth doing, may as well do it right. This PTO shaft had several dents in it where the FH hit it. Ever since I brought it home it’s bothered me. I knew I would regret not fixing it so I cut it apart, bored a piece of tubing and pressed it back together and welded it.

Pretty sure when this was made safety and PTO’s weren’t on top of the priority list yet so I figured I’d put a modern day twist on this one and paint it yellow instead of white like it was.

The guard for this mower is the only thing I lack. Tst was gracious enough to send me photos and dimensions of one he has. A good friend of mine works in another machine shop and has the capabilities to roll this top piece but after being a pallbearer at his moms funeral a couple weeks ago I don’t want to bother him with it. I found a piece of scrap and gonna try and use it. It should look okay after paint. If not it’s better than the one I had......nothing. This is our break press.

Guard is welded, need to go to powdercoat and get the piece it bolts to and drill the holes.

Put the original tag from the FH one and also the donor deck on as well. Got to clean all the anti-seeze off from putting it on the stainless bolts.
