Front wheels on husquvana riding mower bow out makes wide turns how to replace front axles ?
I have worked on SO many lawn tractors over the years so I feel comfortable telling you this is probably normal. These aren't precision machines, they're stamped metal decks and mostly plastic machines so there won't be adjustments like your car or a commercial machine might have. There may be one or even one tie rod adjustment for each side, but these are all built with a price point in mind as well as the idea that they are big, cumbersome, not easily controlled, imprecise machines so they're designed to have a high positive camber, (the tops of the wheels angle out farther than the bottoms,) and a LARGE amount of toe-in, (the fronts of the wheels point in at eachother), to assist in maneuvering these cheap hunks of Chinese quality. I really wouldn't worry about it, just get the wheel as centered and straight as possible, anything as far as toe or camber past an inch I'd worry about something being bent MAYBE or jut out of "alignment" but if they, when sitting still, are all approximately less than an inch in either of these directions and close to some sort of symmetry, then that's just normal and these other posters are just making you more worried than you need to be. These tractors support their weight, a close to 90lb engine, your weight, are rear wheel drive, have to move and cut grass simultaneously, AND steer, so the geometry is pretty exadderated to make turning and maneuvering easier. This is why they come with steering wheels
