Never saw this coming. Halfway through a property my front axle broke loose and i almost ran it over. Bad factory welds broke and the pivot bolt also broke. With the mayhem a shock also broke in half. But i got lucky. Went to tractor supply for a new 8" 3/4 bolt and rewelded it all with gussets. All in all $6 for the bolt and i was even able to weld the shock back to 1 piece. This is a 1500. Anybody hear of this happening before? ;)

No, I have a IS2000Z 2008 model. Did you do any wheelies?

no wheelies for me. I do run this machine hard though with bagger, front dethatcher and it mows a lot of properties.
