I find myself in a difficult position,I was one of the first landscapers in the memphis area to purchase a super z shortly after the longtime dealer went out of business, a new dealer was chosen and I purchased a mini z the mower was great it was fast, handled great and the cut was good I told many of my friends about the mower and encouraged them to demo, and many bought including myself bought two more. all was well until the hours got up around 900 then people started having pump and wheel motor failures. most were out of warranty and I thought it must be from abuse until it happened to me. At 1240 hours my first machine 2005 super mini z wheel motor leaking bad need new wheel motor and the other side so much play mechanic says maybe a month , two new wheel motors $1150 dollars next the 66 inch super z needs another wheel motor $700 dollars next the 60 inch needs pump charge kits both pumps leaking. All the machines out of warranty went to my dealers owner and asked if he could talk to hustler and see if they would give me some help on the parts and he tells me its just a part of business would not even talk to the good people at hustler. I told him I have owned toro with over 2000 hour no hydro problems at all. I always thought your dealer would go to bat for you with the factory. I wonder what would cause someone to buy a new hustler when the older ones they have gave poor service. I am still in shock I really believed that hustler was the best mower money could buy, even though I had had several other shall we say small problems. I hate to say it but it looks like I will have to find another brand of mower. WHAT would you do if you were me. P.S. the 66 inch has 949 hours and the 60 inch 958 hours all service has been done on the mower at the dealer and the only people who use the mowers are myself and son.
