Been thru a couple pto clutches, but otherwise just basic stuff - belts, throttle cables, 1 pto switch, ect. This past spring i got the 930a ztrak, with the comfort/convienence package. It took some gettin use to but i grew to love not having to step on the deck lift pedal all day.
I have gotten more hrs out of the mowers pto clutches by turning the blades on at 1/2 throttle ..... and we idle down before shutting the blades off. Sorry to hear about your 757. thanks for the kudos.
About turning the blades on and off at lower throttle is something I had always done til I got my new mower and they said to do it at full throttle! I trust these guys and they are always there to help! Do you think its just a trick for me to be buying more parts sooner?
