    I had a problem yesterday with diesel super Z. After mowing for four
    hours, hitting 50 75 large ant beds, the blade speed went to very slow.
    It took 4 mins from the time I engaged the blades until they got up
    to speed. Hustler says, it's a pump or releif valve. Any one have this
    problem.. 43 hrs on machine.

    Hustler believes it is a relief valve... I am taking it in to the dealer today.
    If this doesn't fix it, Hustler is replacing the HYD Pump.

    Talking about some excellent service your dealer and Hustler just provided it for you, would it not be nice if everybody you dealt with in business had this kind of service but normally this is not the American way.

    At this time i am very impressed with Hustler responing so fast.
    My dealer is that kind of person.. He believes if you purchased
    equipment from him you must get immediate attention and
    resolve the problem... He wants you to come back. Don't see
    many of those anymore.

    The "cat" engine isn't too bad on fuel, I can mow all day on a tank of fuel.
    9 gals... My 21 hp diesel Kubota beats it . It burn about a gal a hr. I
    wish the Hustler was a direct drive live the Kubota, it would have unlimited
    power.
