That was funny!
My dealer sets the deck up with the rear tires inflated to 22 psi. I asked why and they said because that's how Exmark ships them and some guys like them like that because they can go faster.
Exmarks ride rough as heck. If you had them at 22psi and went fast you better wear your seat belt to stay in the seat.

I demoed a Cheeta last year, hoping the ride would be superior. After getting the crap beat out of me the first couple of lawns, I checked the air pressure. Twenty-nine pounds in the rear tires, front were over 20. I dropped then down to under 15 and told the dealer about it when I took it back. Just kind of shrugged his shoulders. I've been friends with this guy for several years, and buy everything from him, but I don't get why they would air tires to spec, because nobody, and I do mean nobody, in their right mind ever runs that much air in the tires on a Z.
The tires come way over inflated because many times they are strapped down with band iron to the crate they come in/on, and they don't want the tires damaged during shipping from the banding. Most dealers are either too stupid, or too lazy to know and/or care about the difference IME.
