Re: (ET) replacement rollers for rear of mower deck
I'm looking all over, but can't find my messages relating to
rollers and the deck in the files here. I bought a kit from some
member of this forum which consisted of new rollers for the rear and two
ball-shaped wheels that required holes to be drilled in the roller
adjustment bracket. These ball shaped wheels (not original
equipment) have completely solved the rear roller bar bracket digging
into the sod, and their shape allows them to slide sideways on
corners. They can be seen on many modern tractor mowers. I'd
strongly recommend this setup to ET deck owners, and I regret that I
cannot find the name of the vendor here. Maybe if you are still out
there you will identify yourself.

I just this last week replaced all of my rollers. I searched for
awhile and ended up discovering that Harold Z's rollers are the best
solution. He not only provides these specifically for ET's, but he
the best prices I found for any roller.
Heres a clip from one of Harolds recent posts;
Yes I am still very much in the business of supplying Elec-Trak
and I thank all my loyal customers for their past support and hope
continue to supply your parts needs in the future. I have had many
parts reproduced,for example I just received a shipment of relays
yesterday that I had made up and manufactured in the USA. I have
parted out approx. 25-30 machines and sold another 15 or so as
machines. In addition I have purchased Elec-Trak parts inventory
about 12-15 former dealers.I have a price list of common parts which
