I don't know how many hours it has. I looked under the seat but couldn't find a gage or mention of one in the manual.
If it has has a hour meter it would be under the seat on the side rail or could be on the control panel, but you would have seen that. As far as the opinion on junking it and buying a Badboy, that is certainly not the best advise. I would find a local Hustler dealer and see what is going on with your machine or any reputable repair shop. I mean it could be a hydro adjustment or need servicing. I think your mower speaks for itself in the fact that you cut 10 acres for x amount of years. If in fact you do have a 2K service bill (Which I doubt) I would consider a new Fastrak. I think you will find the new Fastraks have changed quite a bit! I have a Fastrak Super Duty 42" and I'd drive it to the office everyday if it were closer, I love it!!
