    I got a new ZD326 this week after trading my ZD21 in after 9 years of great service. I like the changes they have made on the new 300 series machines. My only concern is the stiffness of the motion control levers. Has anyone else had this issue? What can I or my dealer do to make this better?

    I think it just comes with being a new machine... Same here went from an 2001 lazer z to a new one and the controls seem way tighter... you just get used to it after a while...

    I was hoping there was a friction adjustment somewhere. Thanks for the reply

    I don't mow commercially so I wonder how long it will take? I guess it will happen sooner or later. I am not a nitpicker, I really like the machine so far

    Like i said i think you will get used to it and it will be the normal for you.. Right now you are still used to your old mower like i was to mine..

    I think it's called overkill! I just want to get done and do other things but I do have several acres to mow. Thanks for all the replies.

    bought ours brand new last fall, only has 2 hours on it and it was super tight. i think you can adjust the dampners... im sure ill break it in this spring. but im going to tinker a little on it anyway
