    Before you guys read this & say "I told you so", OK, OK!!!! I bought a ztr from Lowes, a Husquavarna 48". I have been in the biz for three years. So far at 12 hrs on both mowers, the linkage rod broke at the carter pin, for the steering. Do you guys think this is something I'm doing wrong in turning? I don't consider the way I turn to be ruff on the mower. I'm now going to get a commercial mower. What is your opinon on this problem. This is the first ztr I 've had. Thanks:blob2:

    With only 12 hours on the machine I would suspect a defective part.

    if you learned anything no big deal, if you buy good quality commercial grade equipment the only regret you'll have is not buying sooner............

    good luck, keith

    I learned the hard way too my first season. Anything that isn't commercial will break constantly. You're going to have to sell it at a loss, then go buy the commercial ZTR anyway. Sorry.
