    As a lot of you people know I've been trying to convince my brother to go in for a Fastrak for our combined 2 acres. Today our new 52" deck 20HP Fastrak arrived! I want to thank everybody in the forum and the forum in general for helping us with our decision.

    We love the unit and are completely satisfied that we got the right machine. I would have gone even larger but there was no way my brother was spending anymore money. I guess I should be lucky he didn't push for the MiniFastrak.

    I do have one question. With both controls at full forward the unit tracks to the right a bit. Is this normal for a ZTR or is there a calibration I can make to make it go a little straighter?

    Thanks again!

    Congrats on the new mower and welcome to the family!!
    The unit is adjustable.
    The tracking can easily be adjusted per the owners manual.
    Although, I would wait until you have a few hours of break in time on them, and do the adjustment (if needed then) when the unit is at regular running temperature.
    You will find as the unit breaks in that it will likely be fine.

    Thanks for the info, I will wait and see how it goes.

    One thing, I cannot find any information in the owner's manual regarding adjusting the tracking? I see info on adjusting the position of the control bars but nothing about tracking. Where is this information located in the owner's manual?

    Thanks,

    Mark

    The procedure is outlined on page 5-1 and 5-2 of your owners manual.

    I just bought a mini-z 42" and I need to do this same adjustment. It tracks to the left and wants to creep a little bit. I have gone through the owner's manual and I don't see anything about this adjustment.

    I don't either on that unit.
    I will see what I can find tomorrow.
