    Hey All. Heres the deal.

    Bought my (new) Toro 36, Pistol grip, belt driven w.b. over the off season just before I started getting everything in check for the start of the season. Since then, the mower has been free of trouble, and well maintained. Now I'm noticing that the mower is pulling left, and my right wrist flexors are letting me know I'm using it too much. I just got done putting air in the tires (the left was very low), but after making them equal in pressure, its still pulling to the left. Whats that next step that I should do? I'll call my dealer tomarrow, but I've got a full schedule of smaller properties that have gates, and taking time to mess with it tomarrow morning over the phone probably won't be the best way to start off the day. But I figured I'd ask here if anyone has any quick tips, or the know-how to take care of this problem. Thanks guys.

    Sounds like belt adjusting or brake adjusting needs to be done.
