    We have a Dixon 308 Mower that runs like a champ, but I need some input as to how to adjust the steering. Thanks. :confused:

    Check the rear tire pressure first, A low tire can affect tracking.

    Steering adjustment can be done with the two rods that attach to the lower part of the joysticks. Raise and block the rear of the unit up, Loosen the two lock nuts on the rods. With the engine running about half throttle and joysticks in the neutral position turn the rods like a turnbuckle until both rear tires stop moving.

    You may have to fine adjust for exact straight tracking once the unit is back on the ground then re-tighten the lock nuts.
