    I have about a year old 42 inch Sport with the Kawasaki engine. I love the thing. I've been having an issue the past couple of times out. On flat dry grass, if I go in reverse the rear right wheel spins. I checked the tire pressure and they all seem fine.

    Also, and I am not sure if this is related or not, but I was going down a slope and tried turning left (so right steering bar pushed forward) and it would not turn. It's as if something is off with the right side steering. ANy advice is appreciated.

    Haven't heard this before...
    i would check the drive linkage and possibly adjust from neutral to make sure everything is adjusted right.
    Does the mower drive / track straight at full throttle and full ground speed?

    It does not track straight at full sped. It actually pulls a tad left.

    I would start by getting the unit tracked correctly, from neutral.

    Do you know where I can take it? Last year I bought it from United Tool Rental in Duluth, GA. I haven't gotten a response from them, and they are no longer listed on your website as a dealer. Do you have any options in the Marietta area (30064), that could look at it?
