    I recently bought a exmark metro with the Fs481v engine. I noticed the emissions filter is damaged, it goes in between the gas tank vent and the air intake. Is this something I need to replace or can I vent the gas tank directly in the intake?

    I have a mid 90’s Exmark Metro 36” walk behind belt driven mower that recently started wanting to stall when I turn right only.

    So I have an Exmark Metro 48, which I use for ditches, hills, and really small yards. I have been thinking about maybe replacing with a Viking.

    Hey, I'm still fairly new to the idea of a trac vac. I've looked around a lot and tried to research them but there isn't much info out there. Does anyone know if a trac vac would work well on a 36" Exmark Metro with a fixed deck? Any comments would be appreciated Thanks
