Rant!!!!!

Okay - Here is the story.. Hustler Super Z 25/52 with 600 hours (609). 2 days behind on mowing - getting really frustrated….. Mower won’t start!!! Just replaced the starter because I probably burned it up trying to start the thing.. Most of the time it would start okay but the rest of the time would require 5-10 min of cranking to get it to fire. So today I get the new starter (really happy - came in one day UPS) and get it installed and try to start the mower. 5-10 min of cranking and connected to the pick up to keep the battery up. It started and I let it run for about 10 min. shut it off, waited 2-3 min and tried to start. It hasn’t started since. Getting spark and fuel. Winched it on the trailer today and in the AM going to travel 1 hour to the hustler dealer who say “bring it by, drop it off and we might be able to get to it”. every day that passes I loose $$$$ and he says maybe we’ll get to it!!!!!. He probable won’t have a loaner available or even consider the idea like I’ve read in here so many times.

Any ideas or thoughts would be greatly appreciated - listening PJ??

Thanks for letting me rant………….

Rant 2 !!!!!!!!

I've conculted with my dealer several times in Wray, Colorado and he seem kind of stumped to - he says fuel issue??? I hope he can figure it out fast because I'm loosing money. I briefly thought of other brands but I quickly slaped myself back to reality - maybe he can use some factory input -

If you could email me your information and your dealer information along with your model and serial # I can get someone to help your dealer get your mower problem resolved.

Thanks PJ but the dealer did a super job and had my mower 1.5 days. Needed and new carb. They also did/looked at other items for me. Dealer was great and I appreciate your willingness to help.. Sorry for the rant - I was just in panic... got the mower back, runs good and now playing catchup.

Thanks
