    I bought a Lazer Z Hp with the triton style deck last year used off a guy i know. I love the mower it has a 27horse Kohler on it with a 50' deck. The only problem I am having is when I pull back on the levers to slow down my right wheel locks ups tearing up the lawn. It will not do it ever time but it is getting to be a problem. The mower tracks straight and makes no funny sounds. It only has 150 hours on it. I have not changed the hydro fluid yet. The mower is still under warranty and I plan on taking it in. I was just wondering if it is something that I am doing or overlooking being this is my first rider.

    Thanks, Mike

    Is the parking brake on that side too tight?

    they will do that when on a hill sometimes. but my guess would be the hydro lever shocks. if they are blown it will cause the things you said to happen. try to slow down before you go to stop also it may help
