    Had this to work on

    Most of it was lack of maintenance seized up adjusters worn out bushes etc.
    Had to turn up a few nylon bushes free up adjusters
    The worst bit was the cutting blade had been welded on some of the 3/8 unc cap heads had broken off

    manage to get them all out bar one that had a broken drill in it so had to come up with an alternative way to fix it so drilled it out with a hole drill and made a plug to weld in

    So its all back in one bit and on the mower just the other two to do lol

    Its a RANSOMES HIGHWAY 2130 with Sport 200 Cutting Units 4wd Hydraulic driven powered by a
    Kubota 25Kw @ 3000rpm, 4
    cylinder (in-line) vertical Diesel

    Awesome “little” project.

    Out of interest, who’s are the hole cutters? I have a couple of random sizes I’ve “acquired” over the years but never looked into getting any more until recently.

    If only I could reclaim all the hours I spent in a cold shed over the Winters working on stuff like that........:(

    Mostly Toro and Ransomes though.

    get the cutter's off ebay suprisingly cheap....1 of the best buys on ebay tho......I usually buy 2 off each size.........had a few shatter....
    I save my best magdrill bits for the more acurate jobs.......
    these I treat like disposable.....
    just add the cost to the bill everytime....
    did use 1 of these cutters to drill out about 400x16mm holes in 3 and 6mm plate / bar.....
    still good at the end but did use proper milk type coolant coolant......
