    Ariens ezr 1648

    Recently, I purchased an Ariens EZR 1648 Zero mturn mower. (my first ever zero turn) After driving it it seems rather slow. When finding the manual for it, the rated speed at full throttle is 5.7 mph. But I am pretty sure its not getting that speed. Everywhere I look the reviews say it is a good fast mower. Is there an adjustment somewhere? Do the hyrdo lines need to be bled?

    Something just doesnt seem right. The mower is in fantastic shape! Speed is my only question.



    The snow is gone and the grass is growing fast so I want to be ready! :)

    Never mind I figured out the speed part. I just had to adjust a couple arms the connet to the handles. Now my next problem is this...... The thing will turn fine at first maybe pull to the left "a little" but then after a little driving I begin to lose the right turning (left handle) Any clues?

    Check the drive belt and pulleys... While looking at that area check that the cooling fans are not clogged up, they are located with the hydro pulleys on Top of the hydros... KennyV
