Default Welding question

I had a piece of a lawn mower (a wheel that was welded to a base that was raised and lowered on a riding lawn mower) that came off. It seem to me that is was welded to the piece I described in the parantheses. Is there any way that a welder would come to my house and weld that piece back on my lawnmower?

I am sure you could get someone to do it but for them to come out to your house with a mobile rig and do that would cost several hundred dollars. It would be best if you could just find someone you know that has a mig welder in their garage and take it to them.

I have no way to transport my lawnmower. I reckon I need to find a way

Default Re: Welding question

First...make some calls to welding shops to see how much a visit would be before you go renting trucks and all. Make the decision based on the cost of a visit vs the cost and time of renting a truck and moving your LM yourself. Maybe even calling a LM repair shop. It may end up easier replacing the part that may be bolted in another location than to weld.

This is the exact reason why you learn to do these things yourself. I know it is not easy, time constraints etc, but it saves money in the long run.

Default Re: Welding question

how flat is your lawn? if you have a fairly flat and level yard they you will prob never notice it gone, its an anti-scalp wheel, it just picks up the deck to keep it from scalping high spots in the lawn, it shouldnt normally carry any weight.


looks something like this? except welded instead of bolted on?

But in all seriousness johnnyb is right it shouldn't carry weight and might only be necessary on slope in your yard

Don't take the entire mower to a welder, take the deck off. It will most likely fit into most cars and SUVs. Mobile welders are common and simple too.

If this thing doesn't bear any or much weight, you could just buy a tube of JB-Weld and do a little jury-rigged patching.
