Toro ZTR - weak hydro?

I just got a new Toro Timecutter 5060 and mowed with it for the first time. It's fast and cuts great, but the right wheel seems to have less power than the left. It's not a major issue except when I try to go in reverse in the low speed range setting. It doesn't have enough power to even rotate the wheel, making the mower move back on an angle, driven almost entirely by the left wheel. I haven't seen in the manual that there is a way to adjust the hydros. Any thoughts?

Yes.Have a dealer handle it. Maybe some basic purge or set up, but you don't want to let a hydro issue become your problem out of warranty.

I'm having the exact same problem. At first Toro told my dealer it was a linkage problem and that there were 4 or 5 reported in the whole United States. My dealer took it in and said that everything was o.k. and they lubed the linkage. Later I told him it was doing the same thing and he said Toro told him that that's how they are and it's o.k. I took him a video today of how the right side won't move backing up a hill and it would go in circles. They are going yo pick it up today to check it again. I don't find this acceptable at all.
