    A quick question for the eXmark guys. I just bought a Turf Tracer HP with 52” deck and the 17 hp Kawasaki. After finishing my first lawn I noticed that the front casters seemed loose. I check the bolt that holds them in place and its snug. Is it normal to have the front casters with about a 1/8” of play in a North/South or up/down fashion?

    This is my first commercial mower and I am not sure if this OK, please excuse my ignorance of this…..

    Thanks for you help,
    Pete

    All My turf tracers Did That BUT The 2002 TT's. They have bearings Like the Lazers Do. But terry at exmark will know for Sure.

  3. Yup, like John said above all the WB's will do that, nothing big.

    All my TT's do that, it also helps to know how much grease to pump in. These have bushings.

    The 2002 52" and 60" TT's do not, because they have roller bearings, that are sealed.
