Scag Freedom Z buzz

I have noticed a persistent vibration/buzzing from my new (< 25 hours) Freedom Z while mowing. It sounds like a loose bolt, washer and nut jumping up and down and just waiting to come apart. After checking fasteners all over the mower and finding nothing loose I decided to let it finally fall of - then I could see what it was. But no such luck.

So yesterday I traced down the source of the noise to the rods connecting the dump valves on the hydraulic motors to the dump levers at the back of the machine. I padded the aft ends of the rods with rubber washers and quieted it some. I now have to see if I can access the front ends and do something similar.

Monday I will speak with the dealer. Just wondering if any one else with a Freedom Z has experienced this issue?

Thanks gorper99 - I have been rather busy helping my step-son refurbish his "new" 1950 Farmall Super A so I have not looked at the forum for a while. I may give these rascals a call.
