  • dog gone bones
  • Hey folks. Did a little trimming with the 14-15 mower today. Worked fine without incident. A couple hours later it dawned on me that I never put the "dog bones" on. So, what is their purpose?

  • Seem to remember that is they are not installed, the mower will raise too high and the PTO shaft will separate where it slides. Might also put too much of an angle on the u-joints. The dog bones just reduce the amount of lift off the ground by essentially shortening the stroke of the lift piston.

  • You're right. Guess I got away w ith something. I only use this for trimming around where my moco wont go.

  • I do not remember ever using those on a 9N or 2N. May be necessary on a 8N.

    However my memory is not what it once was!

  • Thanks for the reply. I have the dog bones, I just forgot to put them on. Didn't make any difference. The mower worked fine. I have that manual too.
