I have a 2004 hustler mini Z with a 52" deck the mower has only like 50 hrs on it can't remember exacly havn't seen it since the fall due to storage for the winter. This mower has been nothing but problems for the amount of hours that are on it. This mower has been through 2 deck spindles and the deck never stays level. i have had the dealer level the deck 5 times in 2 years. Are these common problems with the mowers or did i get a bad mower. I know the dealer i bought it from stoped being a hustler dealer and would not buy my mower back. So know i do not know where a deal to work on the mower is and i am afarid that when warrenty runs out in june that i am going to have many problems. I see no reason why i would buy another with the way this one has been. Sorry for venting i have just be unsatified with the mower.
