    Just wondering if anyone knew if there is an adjustment to a hydro walk behind. My 2002 Bunton 36" Hydro W/floating deck is giving me fits. When I want to turn the wheel usually locks up abit and skids and when I want to use the ZTR move it usually spins the wheels. Any help would be appreciated.

    Is this a new problem or has it always done it? Maybe the controls are just too sensitive. On my ferris I could adjust the controls to make it more my style.

    I would be more worried about the one that locks up than skids.

    My problem has been there from the get go. Let me restate the ZTR problem. Whenever I use the ZTR it will probably lock the wheel up on stop and then when I turn and start the other way it will spin the wheels and dig in.
    Like your Ferris I was hoping there was someway to adjust the sensitivity with the pistol grips. I have adjusted the linkage but did not help all it did was make it way to slow to back off the trailer.
    Help Wanted and needed!

    Get it back to your dealer! Have them get it adjusted right and show you how to do it for future reference. If he values your business, you will have no problem.
