So I noticed the deck was vibrating a bit today and something didn't sound right. Dropped the deck flat to the ground and started to inspect things and noticed the pto auto connect coupler was looking a little weird. It was cocked to one side and I went around the other side to see some flat stock snapped off and a really deep gouged rod. Here are pics. Is the tractor side of the PTO coupler suppose to swivel a little to adjust as the mower deck floats around a little as it rolls on the anti-scalp wheels. Mine is rock solid the bolts are tight that hold it in place.
I bought the tractor 2 years ago at the beginning of August, so if I am right my warranty ran out. It will suck if it was a defective part or the dealer had calibrated my deck wrong during the original install and set-up. Hopefully there will be some sympathy. Though it does not look hard to replace the parts, just not sure if there is something wrong with the calibration.
