    Awesome thanks. I will also go back next week to recheck the track bars on the back of the deck. I swear I saw none?

    Dad's got arthritis in his hands and used to have aching muscles from our ZTR. We got a Toro Grandstand and we love it from top to bottom. Love it so much we picked up a Wright Stander X yesterday, and it absorbs even more bumps. It's been proven that with the right absorption that you're able to stand for a longer time. Just our experiences.

    I really do appreciate your concern & advice, but the Dr's. said this is a structurally corrective procedure which, after fusion and healing are complete is at no risk of any damage. I had 29 degrees of curvature involving 5 vertebra (Scoliosis) ... they put in the pins/rods/cages to straighten and stabilize my lower back. Once the fusion takes place, I should be OK to resume all normal activity.

    Adding to the Ferris debate. Last winter I looked at a 3100 and 2000 series I forget which one. None of them swayed. The dealer was even jumping on the foot platform and the deck its self. I was pushing on it with my feet side to side. No movement. It was like my Deere z950 I had at the time. Any reason that dealer would remove the bars? Or re adjust them?

    :dancing: OH YEAH !!! :dancing:

    I hate that I had the procedure done so late in the year ... Fall & Winter are my favorite times to work outside ... fat people sweat too much in the heat & humidity of Spring & Summer here in S.E. Tennessee. It will be minimum 6 months to total recovery, which puts me down from early September till about March ... oh well, I guess I'll just have to sweat a lot to get the same things accomplished.

    Try a Gravely 400 series. Get the seat adjusted correctly, and you will be amazed at the difference. I now own two of them.

    Not if they already assembled from the factory. They are there so it won't sway back in forth. And there's no adjustment to them. The only thing that can happen is the bushings can wear out inside the tube where they mount to the deck. But I've only seen that once and it was on a older 3000z. Even then it only swayed 1"
