I posted a week and a half ago mine broke the spring at the end of the drive cable my dealer cannibalized a new mower and got me going. Guess what the second spring only lasted a week. My dealer did the same thing but he only has two mowers left. He told me exmark stopped production until they fix this and a belt problem (a couple mowers have come back to his shop eating belts). I want to know what exmark is going to do for me because in another week when this spring breaks my dealer won't have any because they stopped production and he won't have any more mowers to cannibalize. Also, if exmark is not going down hill they better get someone back on this site and inform us what is going on. I bought this mower because nobody had anything bad to say about exmark. Guess I decided to buy the wrong mower at the wrong time. They will get these problems fixed but I hope they expedite the cables or I will be a mower down and will have to shell out another grand for a honda until they fix this.
