I am not talking about wiring issues. I am talking about starter issues, flywheel issues, and rocker arm issues. Anything that has to do with engine failure/problems, is not a Gravely problem. It is a problem that the engine manufacturer is responsible for.
Except for J.D., I believe most all mower manufacturers are going to tell you that they are not responsible for engine problems.
So, let's not be blaming Gravely for that. What make of engine is on those Gravelys??

Does anyone own a Hustler FasTrak Super Duty? If so, what are you thoughts on ownership? Any problems? I'm looking to purchase a 54" model this week. Are there any Hustler owners that can comment on some of the accessories available, specifically the striping kit. Thanks.

Gravely warranty covers averything but the engine on their machines. Yes, the selling dealer should be set up with the engine manufacturers to do warranty work on the engines their mower lines use. You would be surprised how many dealers are NOT authorized to work on engines.
So, if you have an engine problem, Gravely can not do much about it. It is the dealers responsibility to work with the engine manufacturer to get the engine problem solved.
I do agree with you about Kawasaki engines. I like Kohlers myself.

Congratulations, I was looking at Cub Cadets too, but then after a few weeks of search I found a new 52" 2009 toro hydro walk behind my dealer just got in and I'm going to pickup tomorrow. I'm glad I didn't go with a cub and I'm sure you'll lover your FasTrack SD.

Now it's time to mow some grass!
