I've been playing with my new 1225 and the pedal seems to lose. It goes just fine forward and backward, but is extremely sensitive to the point that just trying to slow down ill lock the wheels up has it try's to spin them backwards. Are there tension springs or something to stiffen the pedal? Any help would be appreciated.

I'm going to let an expert chime in... But my 1477 bolens had a chatter and was hard to find a zero point.. What seemed to help was the bronze bushing at the frame where the pedal shaft goe's in and thru.. Mine was missing...

Good luck sodi...

There should be some adjustments with the control rod that connects to the petal, Also like mentioned above check your bushings. If really worn they will cause the petal to have excessive slop. I do stock them if needed.

On the passenger side of the tractor below the tube frame is the rod that connects the treadle pedal linkage back to the hydro linkage. On the front end of that rod there is supposed to be a spring and elastic stop nut that you can adjust for tension. See if that spring is there and see if the block that the rod goes through is worn.
