    I was at my local dealer today looking at the AS. While looking under the deck I noticed the bolts that hold the spindles on, appear to be in backwards.

    They come in from the top and stick out into the deck. There was 3/4 to 1 inch of bolt sticking out.

    My question to anyone who has this mower, is this the way your bolts are mounted through the spindles?

    It looks like a recipe for a packed deck to me.

    The AS model has very few complaints from owners, I wouldn't let that bother me. The Ultra Cut leaves a great cut, not the very best deck for wet conditions but over all a great machine. I would worry more about the 52" with of the deck, you loose all your trim compared to a 60" deck. I can see no reason to get a 52" deck on a full size frame ZTR like the AS series but that's just my opinion.
