    Weld. You can see the tear
    in the metal. He must have hit
    something. Cash is cash no matter.

    Those tires aren't OEM, and the pitting on the top side of the mower deck next to the discharge guard, and the thin/thick sections around the metal and the anti scalp wheels say that that unit is at least 3 years old if used daily, rode hard and put up wet. I've got a 7 year old JD mower with less wear and it's been used to cut a lot of grass.
