    To the fabulous eXmark team,

    I had just removed my blades on my 36 metro and I noticed the temp of the spindles and bolts was pretty hot. Not too hot to touch but too hot to carry for long. Normal....not normal? If not normal what to look for?

    You eXmark guys are fantastic, keep up the great work!!!:) :)

    Dear Rick:

    Thanks for your e-mail. Was the unit making any unusual noise when the blades were engaged? Did you hear a howling sound coming from under the deck or feel any excessive vibrations? If you did, you could have a spindle assembly going bad. If you did not experience either of these two things, the heat is normal and nothing to worry about. Just keep an eye on it.

    Hope this helps,
