John Deere TRS26 Drive Housing Cracked!
The drive housing cracked and separated on my TRS 26 today during snow removal. Wondering if itís realistic to try and replace/repair or if I should bury this thing. Iíve used the machine for 12 years since acquiring and itís been a beast. I love it. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

i would weld that up and put another piece of steel over part of the broken area and run her . maybe put a piece on the other side too.

Yup . . . weld with a reinforcing plate and you will be good to go. And keep an eye on it, as well as the other side . . . . that took time to fatigue, and would be a lot easier to fix if caught before it separated.
