My 30" troy bilt rider was Less than a year old, when the trouble began. It Started digging circles in my lawn, then blade flew off.
Fixed by changing blade, a month later it stops cutting. Idler arm they say, which i must have caused. Extended warranty wont cover. Out $158.
Used it one more time and it worked. Second time digging circles in the lawn afraid to use it. Have had possession of it only 13 months. It was Bought new from Lowe's july 2014.
Here is what yard looks like.
Funny a friend of mine has the 42" which broke an idler arm they say. Hmmmmmm
