Cracked frame


Recommended Posts

I've got an 18 year old Bolens (MTD) lawn tractor I bought from Lowe's; it's a 20 hp with 42" mower deck. I was changing the oil and found this crack in the frame. I was going to just replace the tractor but I don't put many hours on it and it's in surprisingly good shape...the only thing I've ever done to it is change the belts and blades. My brother had a John Deere LA135 and this Bolens is actually heavier and better built than his. I cut and drilled a piece of flat bar, that should take care of it.
