CC Zforce hard to steer

    I am new to this forum and have a question. I recently bought a Cub Cadet Zforce 50. I am having a hard time keeping it moving in a straight line. It seems the hydrotrans is "choppy" and the mower seems to go left and right without much of a smooth transition. The mower had 450 hrs on it and is otherwise in pretty good shape. It is the only zero turn mower I have used so I am not sure if it is me or the unit but I dread mowing the lawn because I have to work really hard at getting a straight line. Any suggestions?

    Thanks

    Sounds like maybe the steering dampeners are bad/broken, They look like little shock absorbers. There's one on each side connected to the steering joysticks.
