Not to long ago you would be lucky to get 1000 hours out of Hustlers hydro system. They lost a huge market share with all the problems. Warranty is worthless with the worst customer service in the industry.

I don't look for them but anything can go that long if you keep changing parts, like I posted as long as the frame holds up you just add parts and money.

Hustler made a 35 Cat Z in around 2006 and it was supposed to be a load but the Cat engine was like way bigger than the Kabukie diesel engine I saw today in the Z's.

Where do I get information on the transaxle they use and what is it?

Its their own trans axle. They make it from scratch. I have basic stuff in my manual but you would need to request a parts diagram from messicks to see it.

Its common for Kubota's to go that long with minimal work done. My Gravely 452 has over 1200 hours now and all I have replaced was the hour meter and a couple rubber bushings. My machine still looks and operates like new and I have employees running it at times. Puppy got 1200 hours out of his old super before he rebuilt it and he mows a country club compared to commercial cutting.

There really isn't lol its the kubota zd326, zd331, and all the gas versions are the same. There is no model or serial number for the trans axle because its made specifically for that machine.
