2 yrs ago (Feb 06) I bought a new Pg Magnum and fell in love with the machine except the transmission went out 11 months later. Last Feb I received a new transmission (UNDER WARRANTY) and continued throughout 07 with no major problems. Today I decided to do major maintenance including a thorough cleaning. After removing the tires I noticed some fertilizer dust "worked" its way under the plastic that is wrapped around the transmission. to make a long story short, I removed the entire transmission and completely tore off the plastic that is wrapped around the transmission and could not believe how much fertilizer was there waiting to "eat through" the trans----HORRIBLE DESIGN. has anyone else noticed a similar problem.
