I think I saw someone on this forum using this mower so I thought I would post this.

Units: About 2,200

The model and serial numbers are on a metal plate behind the seat. "Exmark" is printed on the side and "Quest" is printed on the front of the mowers. The mowers are red and gray.

At least there doing something about it.

My ford truck just started the infamous death shake. Ford wont hold any responsibility for this despite 100,000 complaints.

every manufacture has problems from time to time, I will give them credit for alerting dealers of other brands so we can watch out for them. I would also post a safety recall on my brands as well.
