    My swing boom is not working properly. The pin that prevents you from pulling the boom into the cab (when it's out front) is disengaging too soon as I swing the boom to the right. I found this out because I pulled the base of the boom into the right front of the cab. I have about 200 hrs on it now and I would have found this out sooner but I've had a mower on it the whole time so I've had the boom all the way to the right most of the time. I sent photos to my dealer and his service guy and they are going to talk to TK and get back to me. Has anyone heard of this problem before?

    That is not good. When I rented one it had a mechanisim that looked almost impossible for it to fail. Something must have broke or a part failed. Post pictures if you can and keep us up to date on what happens with you.
