    Last fall I had to have a wheel motor replaced at around 200 hrs, when I got it back it didn't run as fast as the other side so my dealer had to adjust the linkage to get it up to speed, but the reverse doesn't run as fast as the orginal side. I don't understand how there could be that much difference in the wheel motors, or could it have been installed wrong?

    It can be a adjustment, air in the system or it could be as simple as tire pressure.
    Have you talked to your dealer?

    Yes, the dealer adjusted it when I took it back because the new side ran slower then other, so now I think he had to adjust it further than normal to get it up to speed but the reverse is slower on that side and it won't turn around as well because of the slower speed. It works, but I am unhappy with it, I didn't buy a $7300 machine to be unhappy with. My dealer said that he doesn't know why there is a difference between the two.

    PJ, does that help, or do you need more info. I didn't really want to post all of it here, since I can't get an email to go through to you.

    Your dealer has e-mailed me, I was under the impression they were working on this for you further since your last post here??
