    Hey Kevin, does Badboy have any plans to put manual foot-assist deck lifts on the CZT or ZT models in the future?

    There is aloud pitch noise coming from my mower deck ...I assume it's my spindle? If it is the spindle ..is there a way to tell which one is bad?should I just run it till it breaks completely are replace as soon as I can get a part?

    Thanks

    If you're able to safely do so, I would take off the deck belt, raise the front of the mower, and spin each blade by hand and see if you can hear something similar to what you heard with the mower running with the deck engaged.

    Before you do take off that belt, realize that it can be a chore to get it back on. I think there is a diagram on the deck to show you how the deck belt is routed through the pulleys when you go to put the belt back on.

    Kevin (retrodog) will probably see your post and have some better advice.
