    Like RaydaKub, I find that I really don't use the brake much except for locking them on when parking, as the HST does all the braking I normally need. That was why I couldn't understand why I suddenly had hardly any brakes, and the pedal went almost to the floor. It seemed like it was quite sudden, but perhaps it had been getting worse and I just never really noticed.

    winedown, unless yours has already been adjusted to it's limit you should be able to adjust and have your brakes back. It's hard to believe the brakes would already need changing unless it was used with the brakes locked or something. Good luck, I hope that's all it is!

    Thanks for all the input.

    Turned out to be a lot of dead grass jambed up by the brake linkage and a rock underneath all the grass that could have caused some of the problem. Then I adjusted the RH turnbuckle(there is only the one) and was able to get the free play in the pedal back to 1 1/4". Put it all back together. Started it up and had brakes. Even if I don't use them it just feels better knowing that I can, especially on the steep hillsides I have to mow.
    Now I can concentrate on learning how to use the backhoe and loader. Thanks, everyone.

    Excellent fix- good thing you didn't give it to the dealer. BTW, for the pooster who asked, slowing to stop via the HST is how it's supposed to work. No harm will come to the HST by doing this. Worry if/when it does not come to a stop on release of the pedal, within reason, not coming down Everest.

    I was pretty sure that was the case, but it doesn't hurt to ask. So...my brake won't hold on a 25 degree hill, but it holds on level ground just fine. But I guess in the end, I don't care...who needs a brake?
