On the 21st last month I had my Z970R delivered. Bought used a 2015 with 215 hours and a real good buy. On that Sunday I climbed on it to mow my yard. Got on it and the first thing I noticed I had to adjust the control arms all the way forward. Got that done got back on it went to put seat belt on and it did not fit. Ok started it up and headed into the yard. I had watched several videos on mowing with a ztr so I thought I was ready. I stopped and brought it up to half idle and lowered the deck and engaged to pto. Brought it up to full idle and took off slowly. Got near end of first row pulled back on control arms and hit my stomach still moving forward. In order to get into reverse I found I had to adjust the seat back into almost reclining and spread the control arm somewhat. This was no t comfortable but it did a great job mowing and it was a lot faster. On Monday I called the dealer parts to order a seat belt extension, they never heard of one and they called Deere and they don't offer one. My one from ford don't quite work. So the following Friday one week after it was delivered it went back to the dealer. My dealer is a first class outfit and offered me a full refund. You can't beat that!! Sorry to see it go my son loved it but it had to be. Of course when I was there the 2038R bug bit me but that's another thread.
