I purchased an Ariens 46" Tractor last summer from a bix box store, it was shipped to me in a crate.
From the moment I took it off the skid the cruise control hasn't worked. Upon further investigation I find that the "hook" that comes down when the cruise control lever is lifted to engage is not reaching the gears on the arm for the throttle. It comes down but not far enough to engage the gears.
I will try to come back later an add a picture to this post so you can see what I am talking about.
Any help would be appreciated, the dealer is no help, I have contact two different local dealers and they say it's something that should have been adjusted by the dealer who assembled it...even though I told them I didn't get it from a dealer.
