View Full Version : Problems with a used Hustler

10-18-2010, 10:01 PM
I recently aquired a HUSTLER MINI Z with a 24h.p. Honda engine with a few small problems that I am hoping someone can help me with. I have a new key switch and starter but the only way i can start it is to short out the starter. It also will not charge the battery . I can charge the battery and it runs and operates great . I was thinking these two problems may be related ,but I don't know.This is the first zero turn mower that I have owned.I really did'nt think I would like it but after some practice I can't see myself using anything else. From what I can tell this Hustler is a great machine .

How old is this unit? what is the model and serial #?
Did you buy the Hustler part # or aftermarket?
Otherwise you need to start tracing the voltage back from the starter and checking every connection, relays, fuses and terminals.
