Having trouble

We have been replacing the lower bearings on 3 separate machines now. We operate Scag only, the lower bearing is on the front caster wheel yoke. 2 of them went on 2 separate V-Rides and the other went on a Turf Tiger. We bought these machines new this spring. I am wondering if anyone has had similar problems? My Scag dealer said that there isn't any indication from Scag that there is a problem but my dealer also noted that his sales on these bearings is up from 12 to 32 in 1 year. Hum I smell problem? Please help.

sounds like you took the issue t the wrong place. I would start with the Dealer, then move to the manafucture.

I started with the dealer. I just don't feel I have to keep paying for something that is possibly engineered wrong!

If you bought them this year, why are you paying for it? They should be covered under warranty no?

Put your money back in your pocket and get the dealer to make this mower dead nuts right...You paid good money for the mower...not for the runaround..

The way Scag works in our area is if you send a note via the scag website they will shoot it down to the tech guy at the distributor. Now our guy is a straight shooter and he woudl know if the use is up on the part but neverthe less he will contact the local dealer with his suggestion.

I don't know how to check those bearing....mine definitely has drag and is not free.
