Everyone knows that rocks will damage mower blades.
But the path of destruction may not always stop there.
Your spnidles can take a beating from a rock being thrown around under the mower deck too.
Believe it or not, hitting a rock can put enough stress on the spindles to completely rip them apart.
The blades crash into the rock at high speeds and can tear the spindle assembly off the deck. The rocks can also dent your mower deck, causing inefficient air flow and grass lift under the deck while you mow.
