    Z930 - Question concerning one Joy Stick being too “over controlling” vs. the other

    On my new Z930M, the right joystick seems to be too over controlling (at least in my opinion). For example, if I’m driving a straightaway I cannot push the right joystick all the way forward (when the left is all the way forward) as it will push the mower to the left. This reminds me of when a...
