Default New deck for Honda HRG415C

My parents have had a Honda HRG415 for a few years now. Engine still runs very nicely but the deck has started to rust and now has a large hole in it which allows grass cuttings to blow everywhere when mowing. The hole is about 4 inches long and half an inch wide.

I've had a quick look and although there are spares online for every other part of the mower I can't find a replacement deck. Does anyone have any idea where I could get one from?

I thought if I couldn't get a replacement it could be welded. Does anyone know what sort of place could do that?

Another quick question: the blade is pretty blunt now, is it more economical to buy a replacement blade or should I get the existing one sharpened?

Thank you

I would assume that the deck can easily be welded, at a minimal expense if
you find the right shop. Try to find a small machine shop or welding shop,
and take it to them for an estimate. Welds of this type don't always look
great (an obvious patch) but functionally, they are perfect. I know
because I have one done, and the old deck then outlasted the engine.

For the blade, call any mower shop and tell them your model mower, and ask
them for a new blade price and a sharpening price. The sharpening price
should be cheaper. Make sure that they balance the blade when they sharpen
it, otherwise you will get vibration.

Hope this helps.

James
