I got a new ZD326 this week after trading my ZD21 in after 9 years of great service. I like the changes they have made on the new 300 series machines. My only concern is the stiffness of the motion control levers. Has anyone else had this issue? What can I or my dealer do to make this better?

I think it just comes with being a new machine... Same here went from an 2001 lazer z to a new one and the controls seem way tighter... you just get used to it after a while...

I don't mow commercially so I wonder how long it will take? I guess it will happen sooner or later. I am not a nitpicker, I really like the machine so far

Like i said i think you will get used to it and it will be the normal for you.. Right now you are still used to your old mower like i was to mine..

I think it's called overkill! I just want to get done and do other things but I do have several acres to mow. Thanks for all the replies.

I found a 22mm nut on the left side of my machine that is the forward and reverse pivot tension adjustment. This nut is only on the left side but it adjusts both levers. There must be a cross shaft across the machine, I backed it off about 1/2 turn and it made a big difference. I couldn't stand those tight controls

we have 3 of them, and just had to wear them in for a few hundred hours lol. you have to learn to loosen up a bit and you wont overcorrect teh levers.

As you sit on the machine, the left side, oppisite the instrument panel, look up under the fender and you will see the nut that is on the same level as the pivot point on the levers for fore and aft movement. I could not see the one on the right side, under the instrument panel. I backed the one off on the left side and it seemed to help both. I like it alot better now.
