When I used to roll out of a ditch with my Lesco Z2, both wheels were on the ground and with all the power of this new machine it would rear up so I had to build some confidence. Also, the first time I had it out, I pushed the handles forward just like I did with my Z2 and the front wheels came up.
This contributed to the fear when coming out of a ditch.
I've gotten stuck on curbs 3 times so far, I think the frame is lower in the back than my other Z.
I take deliberate action to angle the approach more than I used to to avoid this.
And of course, buying a machine this expensive and having the paint flake off the deck is disturbing.
If you want to know how I feel about this machine, look in the testimonials section of my dealers website.
If your dealer is as you said, and I feel assured he is, then what is being done about the paint problem? Hustler needs to be the one handling the repair problem.
