 Broken Weld

I was pulling my mower deck out of winter storage last weekend when much to my dissappointment I discovered a broken weld on one of the front anti-scalp rollers. The break occurred along the vertical interface between the round "stem" (a tube) that holds the roller's pinion shaft and the offset bracket that holds the stem away from the deck. What really got me was that the break occured AT the weld indicating to me a poor quality weld. Now, I'm sure I put undo stress on the roller at some point probably from running into something, but I know I've never really hit anything hard, certainly nothing out of the ordinary. I am bit surprised. I'd have to check to be sure, but the unit is probably out of warranty. The repair is simple and I'd be happy doing it myself, but I was wondering if anyone thought it would be worth while to talk with my dealer about the issue?

 Broken Weld

If mower was in hand we would just weld it up and send you home after a quick coat of paint while your taking a break with a cup of coffee, sorry no donuts. Kubota or what ever manufacturer might get contacted but only if rep was in the store or if the unit was still under warrantee to be paid. We see it from time to time in house and some times coming from the field like with yours. I wouldn't want the job so I'm glad for the most part the factories do well but I've also seen some bigger blunders.
