    We have 4 hustlers z and we have cracked off one of the back mount tabs . This has happen when you come of a curb and the clutch bottoms out . We have built frames to protect it , but still has happen from time to time.;)

    Any pics?
    I have never seen a engine mount failure, seems odd.
    We do offer a skid plate as an option for when its needed.

    Is the frame on the mower breaking or the aluminum tabs on the engine where the mount bolts go through?

    The tab on the engin broke on mine, just the out side part. There was enough room to drill another hole and move the bolt.

    It Is The Aluminum Tabs On The Engine That's Braking Off . Kaw Motors
