Walker walk behind tracking issue

Hopefully someone has had this happen. After the fluids have warmed up the mower starts to pull to the left as if you were holding the left hand control. It does not do it until it has been running for about 10 minutes. It progressively gets worse. It is a 2008 model, 36" deck. I do have it serviced regularly. What should I be doing?

Thanks.

You can try adjusting the tracking, try looking it up in your manual, but its odd that it does it when it warms up, probably a pump issue or something, hopefully someone else can chime in, you don't see many walker walk behinds, I wish I had one. Could you post some pics of the machine/stripes, that would be great, thanks.

hahahahah^^^^^^^ I was going to ask the very exact same thing!!!! I only run Walker for riders but I have always wondered about the Walk Behind.... I would think it would be awesome right? Doesn't the deck float just like the riders?

I believe it does, Pro-turf recently posted a pic of one he saw somewhere and it had some serious tires on it, I run a turf tracer which is nice, but a walker is in a different category.

I ran a walker walkbehind for 3 years. Great on hills and had good cut quilty. Then my boss got a scag walkbehind. Not good on hills at all. And it took 2 guys to change blades. It had the bike style bars. What a joke. Hated the scag. To bad walkers not making walkbehind anymore.

The left hydro may be wearing out. Warm oil is thinner and provides less power. At one point I rigged a water drip on old hydros to keep using them.
