    I feel the same way about the zt3400 so smooth and responsive.

    I received 6 serial numbers from bad boy to replace the pumps. On a couple of units it was just one side. Doesnt seem to be a big recall or I woulda got alot more serial numbers.

    What was the recall for though, if you know? I mean, the entire pump, something in particular, or what exactly was wrong that got their attention? Thanks.

    Well, with the recent posts about a possible ZT5400 recall issue, and the fact that my Cheetah uses ZT5400's, I called my Scag dealer moments ago.

    In speaking to Keith at McGyvers, he seemed to be well versed on the ZT5400 issue, and assured me (thus far) that this ZT5400 issue did not pertain to ZT5400 units used by Scag......

    I look forward to reading and learning more about these ZT5400 issues.

    Can you post the serial numbers so we can check them?

    Here you go brotha.... I don't think this is released by all manufacturers yet, hope this isn't illegal or anything...lol. But a recall is a recall. I believe anyone with 5400's in this date range should check to see if they need to be replaced...

    I got the call friday that my new hydros were in to replace the ones recalled on my 5 hour 472 and that I could drop the mower off to them any time, so I will take it in Monday. I went to mow the yard this evening and my right hydro locked up and I almost hit the wifes car, not good. Can anyone tell me if there is a release to free the hydros when not under power so I can load the thing up. Thanks
