    One of our Turf Tracer FH500V engines is hunting at idle (low or high) but does fine for pwr w/ blades engaged. Any ideas? Tried new plugs, drained carb bowl.

    If you've changed the plugs and drained the carb there are only a couple of other things I'd recommend that you try before you take it to your dealer.

    You've probably already done this but check the air filter and make sure the engine can breath. Second change the fuel filter if it's been in use for very long.

    More than likely you're going to find the problem is in the governor adjustment and you'll need to take it into your dealer for service.
