 Anyone else hearing bells???

The BX23 was delivered this week and here's the scenario... Tractor was started and shut off several times while the delivery guy was here with nothing unusual happening. Five minutes after he left I decided to try it out on the front lawn and cranked it up. 50 feet of travel and I heard a loud clunk - looked back and saw a metal piece on the ground. Hmmm - not instilling great confidence here. Called the dealer and figured it was the mid PTO drive shaft (remember, I'm new at this!). Decided to put the tractor in the garage before fooling around with it, so I pulled it in and turned it off. That's when it started dinging! Like when you leave the headlights on and turn off the car. For about a full minute it kept dinging while I checked all the light switches, etc trying to figure out what was up. Eventually it stopped and hasn't done it again since. Problem: I still don't know why it did it. There's no reference to any audible alarm in the owner's manual and the dealer said this didn't exist on the tractor! Anybody out there know what this was about???

Was Rod Serling standing outside, smoking a cigarette and talking into a camera?

I had a BX. It only made tractor noises.

Never heard of the bx ringing. but your dealer needs to train its people to set up its tractors correctly. there is no reason the mid shaft should come off except for negligence that could have been very destructive and dangerous. Those things spin at about 2000 rpm.

Yep, that was not the best way to make a great impression on me. I was wondering if it could have caused more damage also. Today is the first day I'll get a chance to try out the mower since that happened. While I was waiting for someone to show me the proper way to re-install the piece I went ahead and mowed the yard with the old riding mower. I was afraid I wouldn't get it done otherwise.
