48" and 42" Allis 416 Deck Refurbishment

3 posts in this topic

I'm getting ready to refurbish two Allis 416 decks, fortunately the 42" deck is nearly perfect except for paint and the 48" just needs a couple of "soft" spots in the leading edge welded up. In the last year I have done a Wheel Horse D-160 deck, an Allis 716H deck, a Bolens 1256 deck, and just recently the Bolens 1476 deck. I also spruced up this little wheel barrow dump cart that I bought for 25.00. After the decks I will start on Case and Ariens dump carts and other implements.

 Decks over there seem to  fare well compared  to over here. Maybe the conditions they are used in are better. Over here and where I live in particular, the grass tends not to really dry out, so sticks to the underneath. People not cleaning them after use doesn't help.

It really depends on the area of the country, generally you folks have extreme conditions with moisture and such, and we have that as well in the north east, south east and north west coastal regions, but in the south west we have a drier climate that doesn't promote the deterioration that oxidisation causes. It is much more common in John Deere decks due to John Deere owners being wealthier and using fertilizers containing nitrates that when not immediately cleaned from the deck quickens the oxidisation process.
