Re: Underside Protection of Zero Turn Deck


Great. Enjoy mowing. Hope nothing else breaks on you. If your grass is that high may want to start out cutting on the highest setting, then lower gradually until you get the height you want and get rid of clumps.
By the way, the easiest way to get rid of clumps is to go back over the lawn with the mower deck RAISED higher then your final cut level

Final thought, how was your mower delivered? Some people when loading forget to raise the deck and it bottoms out on the gate or ramp.

They pulled it off a truck with a forklift. I've always had a strange line in my grass when I mowed. Now I know why. I'll photograph the blade later, it's clearly obvious that I did not hit anything. Bottoming out, on the blade bolt, hard enough to break the mandrel wing AND bend the whole shift inside the mandrel would take incredible force, which never happened. Just discovered the shaft was bent.

No doubt the forklift caused the issue

I think they're going to pay me back half of what I spent on the spindles. If not then I'll make who's whole thing an issue with them. They didn't have my wife nor myself look it over when they dumped it off on the side of the road. Hell, the first one they dropped off started once. Then the solenoid was stuck on, so any time the battery was connected it would make an awful howling sound. They came and picked up that whole machine, dropped me a new one.

On top of all this, I sat on hold for an hour while the Lowes EPP rep had half their office trying to figure out how to transfer the plan from the mower that was taken from me in July 2016 go the one I have now. They're ridiculous. I highly doubt I'll ever get another plan with then on equipment. Unless... Unless... Unless this reimbursement doohickey read pays off. We will see. If i drop more than 700 on maintenance and blades over the life of the plan then yes it'll be worth it. Next task is to find out how often I can get blades.
