Toro deck noise

    Just bought a new Toro Z-Master to replace my old one and I love it except for the deck noise. It has the turbo force deck and with the blades engaged there is a horrible resonating roar that fades in and out. It's really loud even with my hearing protectors on and I can feel it in my chest. Has anyone else experienced this and is there a fix? I'm planning on trying a different set or blades to see if that makes a difference.

    I would talk to your dealer about it and see what they say.

    If there is a defect, it will be covered under warranty.

    Good luck,

    Sounds like a belt is way too loose or perhaps a blade is unbalanced.
    My Navigator sounds like a vacuum cleaner when the pto is engaged but there is no vibration.
    The vibration is telling you something is not right.
