    Re: Hustler Raptor 52" Model # 933077 Deck Issue, Bolt/Mount Broke, Deck dropped.

    Another thing I'll warn about is the soft deck metal...

    Twice now, either me or my G/F have been backing out of the shed and down a plywood ramp, when we did so, the decks seems to have gotten High centered (even in the all the way up position) and bent the round metal that the blades spin in.
    Then when we turned on the blades, it clattered like all hell was breaking lose...

    I had put it up on ramps and crawl under it with vice-grips and big pliers to bend the metal back out, so the blades would clear...

    That was at the beginning of the summer, since then, I've been putting it in the garage to prevent that... I guess I need to build a better or not as steep ramp.
    Its just a 4x8 sheet of plywood, cut down a bit, turned length ways and laid down so I can drive the Mower or ATV in and out of the shed.

    I'm limited on ramp options as the dang shed doors hang down about 4" lower than the actual floor, I guess to help seal out the winter and look nicer too... Anyway, if I build a permanent ramp there, the sheds doors would hit when I open or close them... Thanks why I just lay that plywood in there till I get whatever in or out...

    When I get home I will get you a couple of good pictures of what I did for my shed ramp.

    Sorry for the late post.
    First I attached a straight ramp to the underneath of the shed drilled holes through the shed floor into the ramps 6" carrage bolts to attach.. I finished off with 3/4 treated plywood.
