    They removed the deck.

    Well, this is Alabama... "Yard art" is a pretty popular thing here! :laugh:

    Yeah, I have only seen problems like this with Bob-Cats... Prolly wouldn't have happened if they could afford a DC, Scag, Hustler or???

    Yeah, the traction lever damper leaked out on the left side and made the unit super jerky... Come to find out, it had been like that for a while!

    Pump was fine.

    Only damage THIS TIME was a punctured/crushed left fuel tank which was replaced along with the left traction damper... Good for another 2000 hours!

    Believe it or not, it crossed my mind to ask if he was a NASCAR fan...lol

    At the rate he was going, I don't think it would have been too long before he turned the mower into a Zero Turn Pipe Cutter!

    That's a post indicator valve. Shows if the water supply to the sprinkler/standpipe system is turned off or on. Also has a valve to turn it on or off. At least they were trying to save time trimming

    My thinking, exactly. NASCAR is always looking for vehicles that go fast and turn left. Aren't Dixies considered one of the fastest machines? And, only turning left -- sounds like a great fit!
