    Has Any One Ever Had A Problem With A Lesco. I Bought A Brand New One About 2-3 Years Ago Not The Pistil Grips But The One That Haves 2 Leavers For Controls Its A Walk Behind And Is Also A Hydro Thay Only Made It That One Year I Have Not Had A Good Experience It Only Has 109 Hrs. On It I Thought I Was Doing Good By Saving About $2000 But I Ended Up Buying A Exmark About 5 Month's Later

    Well whats the problem? I have one, and I am not terribly impressed with it, but it works. There is a reason they blew them out for 2 g less.

    Yep, sounds like mine. There are adjustments to the hydro linkage you might have to make. That will get rid of the illusion that one of the hydro pumps is stronger which i doubt it is, Because mine is the same way.

    It Is Also Way To Heavy Gets Stuck Alot And Leaves Ruts In Damp Grass. Some Times It Can Be A Bear To Get Up On A Curb

    The dreaded super commercial. What as piece of poop that thing was. Everyone sold would end up at my mechanic to try and sort out the hydros and cutting problems. He could get both close but never right on.
