I run my Gravley z-turn at 10-12 pounds on rear and 15 pounds on the front, the lower pressure will give a softer ride.

Thanks for the reply. I am looking for hydraulics and control adjustments. I’m sorry for not being more precise. Any help greatly appreciated. I have mechanical experience and I would rather fix this pulling to one side issue on my own 😊

Have you checked your owner's manual for adjustment info? Sometimes they'll include instructions for "adjusting the tracking" (that's the official name for the procedure.)

For clarification, when the control bars are in line with each other (either in forward or reverse) it pulls to one side?

Thank you for the proper term. That is a good idea. I was hoping to get a lucky quick reply solution. I’ll have to find my manual in the meantime. I bought it last year. 😊

I just purchased a new Radius X-Series, and I noticed a pull to the left on mine. The owner's manual calls it "adjusting the tracking". There is a allen head stop screw you can adjust in or out to correct this.

I had a 2019 Radius E and I had troubles with it tracking straight. I needed up sending mine to the dealer. It ended up being something with the adjustment on one of the control levers. It wasn't the allen set screw, rather it was something to do with the connection between the lever and the hydrostatic drive. These machines use dampers for the control levers and I believe that there was either slack on the one side or the connection between the damper and the lever had to be adjusted. When I got it back from the dealer it certainly felt much better and drove straight.
