View Full Version : Had a Bad Vibration today

Just wanted to let you guys know how bad your mower can shake if the blade is even a little out of balance.

Today I had three properties to mow, and on the last one the mower (52" ZTR) started shaking real bad. I kept mowing to try and figure out what was causing the vibration. It felt so bad that I thought I lost part of my blade but I knew that I didnt hit anything other than a stick.
Finally it got so bad I had to stop, and check it out. Upon inspection of the blades I found two pieces of twine wrapped around the left side blade bolt (between blade and spindle). I removed the string (about 9" long) and the problem was gone.

Hard to belive thats all it takes. I thought she was going to shake apart.
