    What is the easiest way to adjust the levers on a badboy pup to make it go straight, it is pulling to one side.

    Usually there are stop bolts or something right about where the levers are mounted. Take a look there or under the frame where the levers attach and see if you can adjust them.

    and WHO is your authorized dealer... and why isnt it in the manual...... two important questions to ask about dbuying equipment from tractor supply , lowes and HD......

    there are stop bolts that are adjusted.... only adjust one to match with the other... let the slow side bolt out to be a bit longer, and try it, keep adjusting till it tracks straight....

    I took it back to the dealer today, I had done messed it all up, I thought that I could fix it and maybe I wouldn't have to drive 60 miles. I tried to adjust the push rods that are connected to the wheel motors, I got it to where it still wasn't driving straight and it wouldn't set still in neutral:hammerhead:

    Don't worry, adjusting the tracking can be a pain in the arse.

    An even easier way to quickly fix the tracking is to mess with the tire pressure. Dropping or adding a few pounds in each drive wheel can dramaticly effect tracking. For instance, if the machine is veering to the right, then put the right tire at 37 and drop the left to 32, might do enough to correct it. Just don't explode one or leave one to squishy.
