    When I am turning, my kubota zg222 makes a squeeking noise. It lasts for a second or two and is high pitched. It doesn't happen much when I am driving straight. I looked at the brake tension spring, and it appears to be about 1/4 of an inch off of what the manual says. I greased the casters and oiled a bunch of the joints. Also, could this be from being a new mower? Maybe some paint wearing off or things loosening up?

    Usually a squeak is the rubbing or a movement of two parts rubbing together. If you cannot locate the squeak I'd suggest letting your dealer track it down because it is a new mower.

    Found it. Just had to oil down the casters a bit and no more squeak.
