    my new examark z 48" Hp was giving me trouble today. When I press the sticks all the way forward I go immediately to the left.

    Have to back the right stick off to go striaght. Not real happy with that right now.

    Anyone have any ideas what it could be? Besides hydro fluid leaking?

    No but all I can say is that I have never been able to get my Toro Timecutter ZX POS to ever go straight.

    Check the circumference on your tires, first. Then you can adjust your hydro accordingly. Do a search on Exmarks forum here on Lawnsite, and there is plenty of info. If you can't find anything, ask them. They will help you.

    Do the levers still align when you come strait out of neutral? I'm also told it could be tire pressure.

    Adjust it per the manual that came with it.

    The hydro release on one of the pumps may be loosened. The mower may have been improperly set up if it's done it from the get-go, but that's doubtful. Either is easy to fix.

    All this is in your owners manual.

    If its under warranty take it back to the dealer and let them re-adjust it.

    I would say 15 hours is under warranty still I believe, thanks for the info, imagine looking in the owners manual. That was the first thing I threw away....

    You really threw your manual away, grasssin?
