My foreman has broken this bolt not once but TWICE. Both today and yesterday he calls me saying the bolt has bent, and then broke. Thankfully my dealer fixed it on the spot yesterday, and then again today. The dealer says they have never seen this bolt break, ever. To be exact, this is the LONG bolt that has the tension spring on it for raising and lowering the deck. My question for all of you guys... ANY IDEA HOW THIS COULD HAVE BENT, AND THEN BROKE??? I asked my foreman DID YOU STEP ON IT!? Of course he says he didn't, and claims he has no idea how the bolt bent, other than he hit some big bumps and that might have put some pressure on the bolt with the deck bouncing around. Foremans says that after it bent he continued mowing and then it broke. I dont believe a word of it....... What do you think?
