    i am going to purchase a new rider in the spring. after extensive research i think that exmark is the way to go. i like their new bagging system. i plan on buying the 23 hp kawisaki i think. my question is, does anyone know what those things are on the front two casters of the rider?


    any other comments on the machine would be appreciated

    I'm not exactly sure what you're talking about, but if you are referring to a picture with the Ultravac, then the two things you are referring to are probably the weights that come with it. These are the two flat looking caps that go on top of the caster arms. Toro's are flat straps of steel that bolt to the arms and run all the way across. These help counter the weight in the rear end when the bags are full so the front end doesn't pop up as easily- especially going up hills.

    They only make the weights for the full size laser and ultra vac. I asked the other day, because I was having problems going up hills with full bags on my laser hp.
