    My friend (who doesn't have internet access), asked me to ask the members who own Toro Z's with 23HP Kawi Water Cooled engines, if they can engage their 52 in decks with the engine running at anything lower than full throttle. He claims that when he engages his at anything below full tilt it will stall engine. He spoke with his dealer and the dealer said to engage at full throttle. He's had this machine over 2 years and has gone through 2 mule drive deck belts and 1 electric clutch. Lets just say he's getting pretty mad. With the belt cost at over $80 each and the clutch over $300 I'd be mad too. He knows that belts and clutches last longer when engaged at lower rpm's but he can't do that on his machine. Does anyone have the solution?
