Hello Elec Trakkers,
I have a question regarding the front mower deck vibration on my E12. This
machine has undergone extensive rehabilitation having been salvaged from
serious and long term outdoor rust and battery acid corrosion .
One of the more curious repairs during it's restoration was the stress
cracks on the deck at each motor mounting bolt. As I welded these and
then even I thought it , this must have been caused by out of balance
However, now that it is operating well in grass- cutting mode, there is an
obvious vibration when all 3 mower motors are operating. When operated
individually there is no undue vibration, but with all three operating
normally there seems to be a resonant beat type of vibration.
Is there a easy cure for this ? Are cracks in the decks at the motor
Any suggestions will be welcome.
