I own a 523Dxi with a 52" deck and it's my first season using it. It's an awesome machine, but I need it go a bit faster, especially when it comes to turning. I understand (or think I do) that it's designed to slow sharply on turns to prevent it from tipping. Is that correct? But it seem to slow to much. It's faster to just back up, cut the wheel, realign and cut a new row. Any suggestions on increasing the overall speed a bit? THX
Hello all. I'm new to the forum and have my Dad's 1978 C-161. How can I increase ground speed? I don't want to race the neighbors or anything but I cruise the property with it. I don't mow with it but use it to move trailers, pull a lawn roller, pull spreaders, etc. It's in really great condition and everything works but ground speed is pretty slow. Plus, as you know, Low range is really slow. Thanks for any help and I hope I put this in the correct section of the forum.
Proud new owner of 1996 416. Was running but then I messed it up. The lever to the right (forward /reverse) was loose. So in a rush I turned the still connected battery over to get to the set screw instead of disconnecting the battery and it arced on the chassis. Leaving a small weld. I set the lever in position and then tried to start it but it wouldn't fire. So here are the symptoms. Starter spins but won't disengage. If I move a lever the starter will disengage. The tractor is really hard to push and therefore I think it's not in gear..
Brand new battery. Checked fuses. Haven't checked spark but feel like it's some safety switch possibly to do with the fact that it is not in neutral
Please help. Want to get her running and have fun.
Thanks in advance
Just joined the forum - I have the following problem with starting wheel horse 212-5 1989.
Tractor in Nuetral/PARK, blade off, brake on, sitting on the sit - turn the ignition - NOTHING.
Same thing as above but the tractor not in the Nuetral i.e. in gear - the tractor start and runs fine.
Any ideas? Help would be appriciated.
