    Hello. I am new here and new to John Deere riding mowers I have a question

    I have a Z335E Zero Turn riding mower. I hope I am posting this to the right place. My question is: my right motion control lever seems to be much stiffer than the left. There seems to be stiff when pushing forward or reverse, also on going in to the neutral position . Is this normal or is there a way to adjust the control lever. Like I said I am new this is my first riding mower. Thank you for your time and any advise or hints.

    Beautiful beaches, moderated summer heat and lake effect snows. Right where I want to be.

    Welcome to GTT, by the way. We are glad you are here and we hope you enjoy your time here and become one of the GTT family.....

    Both control handles should behave the same way as far as pressure, etc to use them. Does your machine go perfectly straight when both handles are pushed all the way forward or does the mower drift one direction or the other? I am talking about on a driveway or road which is very flat and smooth. I am wondering if there isn't some adjustments necessary, which is why i wonder about the mower tracking perfectly straight with both handles full forward.

    Both levers should have equal feel. If you are under warranty I highly advise you to have the dealer check it out. We have seen several units with steering lever issues. Mostly due to parts falling off.
