    How do you know when one of your spindles lets go???

    You start to feel a vibration. Occasionally, you may hear a noise (like a rough, grinding roll) as it stops, as well. If you are going to change out the bearings yourself (we always do), change them immediately before they whop out the spindle walls.

    It just sounded strange under the deck a few times earlier. Machine has 1000 hrs on it, and cuts fine. Hoping it was just from all the wet grass we cut today....
