    I Just Tried My New Tiger Cub With The Blades Engaged And Wow What Resonating Noise. Is This Normal For These To Be So Loud. I Tried A Ear Head Set And It Was Worse. Any Ideas To What's Up Or Is This Normal. I Tried A Demo 2wks Ago And Don't Remembering It Being A Noise Problem.

    I'm Outside On The Lawn. It Is More Like A Loud Humming-buzzing Sound. Sounds Like Tubulance From under The Deck, But This Can't Be Normal.

    Turn it off. Bring it back to your dealer. Is there any smoke or smell.

    No Smoke Or Smell. So Your Saying There Is A Problem With The Deck. Is It Possible The Front Adjustable Baffle In The Lowest Position Is Causing This?

    Check to make sure the blades are tight and if they are its probably the belt tensioner and the belt is vibrating against the cover.
