    I'd go with scag as well...700 hours, still got and easy 2000 left in it. ask yourself Why did they have to change the wheel motors? and pumps? why spend that kind of $$$$ only to sell the unit. Did they fail from poor maintenance? low oil, dirt in the oil. ect...

    you may be buying other unseen problems with the hustler...

    we have scags tiger cubs with the kawi engines one of which is 05 with many t mroe hours than 760 and other than a one bad idler pulley. no issues. they are well built machines and I have 20 employee's using these things not a solo op where the owner rides the machine and babies it...
