      Puppy Paws,
      Hustler is pulling the plug on Lawnsite. Just got way too pricey. Stay well and thank you for the support the past couple of years.

      My nature is to ask for hard numbers. You and I both know what they are already. It's not just us, Deere, Scag, Toro. the all use it.

      My 35 has plenty of power, people want fuel injection for fuel savings more than anything. I can't understand why Kawasaki is not being upfront about fuel usage on their DFI, it makes one somewhat leery when a company will not back their fuel injection system with some hard numbers on fuel savings. Kohler has no problem with conservatively saying you can expect 20% fuel savings with the closed loop system. Try to get someone at Hustler to make Kawasaki give them some numbers, this is a very important selling point, and a question most thinking about buying would ask.

      Got back from the factory. Still moving forward on the DFI from Kawasaki. Unable to get gallons per hour from any-one. Seems the answer is more power instead of fuel savings.

      ive had to put this one aside for now. On the carb there is a solenoid that holds the needle and im thinking this could be a problem.I have a few other machines that have gone down with easy problems so im tending to them first.When I find out the problem I will let you know.

      If you are getting good clean fuel into the combustion chamber, and fire to ignite the fuel, it's got to run unless there is an internal engine problem, and with 2000 hrs. that is definitely not out of the question.

      the funny thing is it has been running fine for almost 2 years and then all of a sudden in the middle of his shift it shut down and started acting up.ive pulled the carb apart and cleaned inside and out.none of this makes sense to me.i will look into the gas tank and see what I find.
