Wow! sorry to hear that. Yeah please keep me posted. I have 114.2 hours on mine right now, and it seems to be ok. Maybee mine hasnt been working at full power and thats why it bogs down, im not sure. I removed the baffle and that helped alot, its fast as long as the grass growth is less than 4 inches, which is rear down here. I will call Lou today and see what he thinks. Thanks Again. Oh I wouldnt be too worried if I were you being that you have them to take care of it there, and once they fix it you shouldnt have any problems I wouldnt think. They have always done great by me as far as resolving any problems, and im way down here. Again let me know thanks!
