Hustler X-ONE and an older FasTrack. For me, they're great machines. I have an excellent dealer, as well.

Well I feel like Kawasaki's and Kohler's quality has gone down hill from what they used to be. I've seen many threads of Kohlers leaking oil and Kawasaki's with their issues as well. If your doing what is recommended in the manual then your doing good pm. If you do more then recommended then thats even better. Bottom line is thing break and ware out. If it wares out early then it either poor pm or poor quality from the manufacturer.

You're too far away and, supposedly, the VX4 deck doesn't do well in your grasses. But, Jeffrey Outdoor Power, here in Taylorville, IL.
