Yeah that's a pretty good point... I never thought of it that way. I suppose I should really educate myself on hydraulics a bit.

That's a desperate repo guy. A friend does repos. 4 guys with the dollies and bad attitudes work much better. Any damage comes out of the repo guys pocket.

Me too. Thankfully I do the mowing, but I should keep the owners manual in the truck. It's online actually. Thanks for your kindness in sharing this

Rtfm

Problems like this could be avoided if you RTFM...

You get the manual when you buy the machine new...If not, ask for it !

What ? You bought the machine used ? Go on line to the manufacture and get the manual. Most if not all manufactures have operator and parts manuals on there web site.

What ? They didn't have the manual online ? Then contact them asking for the manual. Chances are pretty good that they will get you one in a PDF....

And yea, there are exceptions.....Kubota comes to mind.....

Ask the dealer to print one out for you, tho it might cost you...I even had one dealer say to me, 'Why do you need that"

And lastly, if all else fails, ask in here.

And some come in Spanish.....
