Trying to decide to buy a Hustler

Hi to all,

I am trying to decide to buy a 42" Hustler Mini Fastrack with a Honda 16 HP engine. The dealer quote me a price of $4595.00 plus tax which would make it $4916.65. I have heard that there are some problems with the Kolher engines. I will be mowing about two acres starting late this year and contuning into next year. I can finance thru Sheffield, but my dealer says they hold back 5% if you chose the 0% 36 months to pay. Will there be any more good financing deals later in the year? Help me decide!!!!

I also posted in the Homeowner forum. Sorry about the doble posting.

The finance companies hold back 2 to 5 % typically on the total invoice price, so this means your dealer doesn't get paid what you financed, most dealers make this known up front.
I am not aware of any better financing coming anytime in the near future, typically the best programs are available in the spring / summer months.
