Thanks for looking. Read first post.Describe the issue in more detail please. Both drives work but are not responding well to small inputs? Is it the same with the wheels off the ground? Any difference when worm or cold? When you try to correct for drift are you always using the same side? Could it be a bad bearing (or multiples) on a front caster?
It only had about 70 hrs when I first became bothered by this . That was the first time I took it to the dealer and also had the 70 HR service done. They said they couldn't find anything, keep using it and since it's under warranty (3 yr) don't worry.
Last year I complained again and bought it in for a broken deck belt and to have them check out the drive system ( Late Summer 2021 107 hrs). They couldn't find anything wrong in 2+weeks and I needed it back for fall leave cleanup.
I returned it to them after complaining to Hustler Corporate Customer Service Fall of 2021 (who contacted the dealer) just after Thanksgiving, now with 107 hrs on it.
I just contacted them and they said they are trying some things Hustler Service suggested. They suspect one transmission need replacing but don't know which one. I asked them to buy it back from me and they asked if I'd buy something else from them? And of course it's frozen out and they haven't time/conditions to do more testing.
I still suspect they are kicking it down the road until it's out of warranty in 5/2022.
