http://www.drivetrain.com/velvetride.html Here is a site you can look at to see how the concept of the Flex Forks work. My Flex Forks have gotten weaker and I am starting to see the crop circles and differences in cutting heights you boy's have been talking about. I call a friend of mine that loved the Flex Forks and cuts for a living and he said his had gotten so much weaker that he was going to put the original forks back on to keep from screwing up peoples grass. He said man I hate that because those things made the mower ride so much better and I said the concept is wonderful and it can be made to work because you saw how good they worked when they were new. I talked with Lonnie today and he was concerned enough that he wants my dealer to replace mine with new ones and sent the old ones back to Hustler for extensive testing, you boy's need to pay close attention to any changes you see with the Flex Forks and make it known to your dealer because customer feedback is the only way a company has to made aware of a problem and this is a wonderful accessory that can be made to work.
