I understand that these tractors come with a factory set toe-in, (is quite noticeable) but I am hoping that someone can explain why? (mine is a brand-spanking-new Canadian version of the PYT9000; Kohler 24HP V-Twin, 46" mower deck, Hydrostatic transmission) To my way of thinking, I would assume that a tractor would steer better if the front wheels were perfectly aligned. The fact that they are toed in would lead me to believe that this would put excessive stress on the steering linkage, bearings, etc, and would even cause premature tire wear, no? So then, this toe-in actually improves the steering? Or am I missing something here?
Looking forward to hearing from anyone who can shed some light on this great mystery. Anyway, I just want to add that I am so far loving my new toy!
