I have a '07 ferris IS 1500 Z 48" with the fast vac set up.. I purchased it late last fall and have bent now 2 of the fast pins that hold the unit on the deck, and when the pin gets bent it makes it a real PITA to get off ... The warranty does not cover the pins, and I have to purchase them ... I was jsut wondering if anybody else has been haveing this problem!!!! Also I'm not rough on my machine I run solo so I take my time and always look out for my stuff!!!
