17457Re: [IH CUB LoBoy Numbered Series] New to a 184 & the sight.
- Jul 5, 2012Hi Rowdy,
I think you're referring to the baffle that fits underneath the deck that follows the arc of the blades? The baffle was missing from my 185's deck when I bought it, and it still cuts great without it. So if I were you, I wouldn't worry about them being damaged, as long as they're not in the path of the blades or at risk of coming off as you mow. I have the 3160 deck.
Just my $0.02. Best of luck!

Anyway... on the 184, looking at it closer, the IH deck is in bad shape after looking at it off the unite. It has a rust hole behind the front left wheel. I'm not sure what you call it but, in the deck ware the blades go around their is about a 3" steel that follows the blades as they spin. Those are all rusted and mangled up. Other than more oil leaks found like; axle seal, gaskets on the engine and ect are bad. We still need to remove the sheet metail and look at what we got more closer.
