    I have a new Scag W/B Belt Drive when Mowing it seems to be pulling to the right. How can this be adjusted??

    Check the tire pressure. If one is low it will change the circumference of the tire thus causing the mower to pull to that side.

    I thought you were going to buy an EXMARK!?!?!?! After all that advice we gave you I thought we had you convinced! :confused: :blob4:
  4. He got it for $100 less than the Exmark so he thought he was saving money. LMAO Yeah right.

    Tire pressure is the assumed answer.

    Also make sure it is well lubed, a front caster tire that doesn't turn free will make it pull also.

    Ok guys you can hit me hard for not Buying the Exmark. But the Dealer here kept giving me the run around on the Price and Service. Scag was up front on everything and the Scag cost more than the Exmark so Money was not the reason if was just how the Dealer treated me.:blob1: :blob1:

    Scag, Exmark, hey they are practically the same thing! Of course I have a used Snapper so what the hell do I know. Posted the same problem last week and it was the tire pressure. My circumference on one of the wheels was off by over two inches!

    Good luck.:cool:
