Thanks!
No worries.

Has anyone with Turfmasters had issues with the left side rear wheels developing negative camber/ bending. All three of our Turfmasters have developed this issue after one season of fairly heavy use.

The left rear is manufactured the same as the right rear. Since all three show the same damage, I'd look at what the guys/gals are doing to cause that.

We have had that same problem. Have counseled my guys on it. We don't have that problem with the exmark.

RandyNC,
Great review, I have the same pair. The Timemaster's been in use for two summers now and the Honda been retired in the shed for the wife to use when I'm out of town. I'd buy the Toro again in a heartbeat!
I did add the mulch blades for the Turfmaster and they are much better then the blades that came with it.
