    I have a eXmark Metro 21" entering it's 6th season and the front wheels are getting "sloppy" or "wobbly". Do I just need to replace the wheels or is something else needed?

    Thanks fellas!

    Unless you're mechanically challenged, tear it down and find the source of the problem. You could have various problems, the most damaging is a loose attachment where the pivot arm is attached to the cast aluminum deck--a loose pivot arm bolt will eat up the deck hole in a hurry if left unattended. Following is a link to what should be a typical Metro 21--if not, you should be able to go to Exmarks website and find the proper one.
