Another one of my odd ball projects
I got a Gravely pro walk behind mower with a rotted out mower deck
being some what creative and having to many tools and time
I custom made the entire deck out of 3/16" diamond plate

I think your rite Bill
But at least my son will have a tank of a mower
It's a shame when some one like Gravely cheeps out and uses stamped sheet metal for the deck
I don't think the deck will be a problem any more

Holy smoke, nice job. That thing has to be twice as heavy? Sure would like to see it all mounted up. ;)

I'd have to use the engine hoist just to mount it!

It's actually not as heavy as it looks
The original deck had a 3/8" stiffener plate bolted to it so it only about 30 lbs heavier
And a little extra weight helps offset the hydro drive , battery and the hydro fluid reservoir
it needs to be repainted again after adding the mount brackets and a baffle underneath
It will be on the front burner pretty soon the push mower is getting old !!

I picked up a yanmar tiller (3pt) that someone had destroyed the outboard bearing and continued to run it....it was so loose the tines ate the sheet metal badly, they then repaired it with a loose bushing and a shim....I guess it worked but it rounded off the shaft end. I was able to install a bearing and custom make a race to keep it in place ....I removed the
damaged sheetmetal and welded perforated steel in its place ...the best part was that all the parts were already here
