    Hello board,
    My Husqvarna seems to jerk or "jump" when first accelerating from a dead stop. After underway it motors around just fine. It has 241 hrs on it. I don't recall it doing this when I first got it.

    Any ideas?

    Check the hydro belt condition/tension, You may take a look at the steering dampeners also. Make sure the dump (free wheel) valves are closed fully too.

    Have you changed the hydro oil and filter since you first got it? My first bet.

    My bet would be the steering damepeners. Mine went bad on both my machines.
