Talked to my dealer today and he passed on to me that he has been seeing a lot of trouble in the new Eye Q system. Seems the computer system that installs on the mowers fould up when it gets wet. He told me he has replaced over 5 this year alone. Also on the new models that com equiped with the EYE Q there is no hour meter, so if the Eye Q goes out so does your hours. and if u override or bypass the Eye Q there is no back up meter. sounds to me as if a redesign is in the works for 05.
