Diesel engine

Has it been discontinued? Did not see it on the Hustler site as an option.

We currently do not offer a diesel in our mid mount Z chassis, as in we are not producing them at this moment.
There are still come CAT units available though, check with your dealer to see if he can get one from his regional warehouse.

Now all we need is a 28hp Vertical Diesel, shaft driven deck, much better drive belt/system and it would be the best mower in the world!

Oh, and bring back the short wheel base!

Another tip would be to put breaks on the front casters!

I live in hope! lol

Wishful thinking on the part of the person that told you that...
I can for sure tell you we are not working on a diesel with a 4 cylinder Kubota in it.

hello, creating the perfect diesel mouse trap ahhhh !!!

deck drive hydraulic with option of belt drive dealer option [fit in field ]
[if u underdesign a shaft drive system it becomes costly]

maybe a top mounted radiator

2x engine sizes fitted to any combination

different rear wheel side to side measurement to allow for trim ability on different size decks

Compact unit and to a lesser degree try to restrict weight to a reasonable level 4 a diesel anyway

Coolers every where at least huge in size

52--66 suitable design

make the 66 design as compact as u can.

it appears the perfect mouse trap may be awhile ???
