    As posted earlier my kit got wedged under the mower causing turf damage and bending the kit badly. I got a "update" looked like different arm, however since my stripe kit was damaged under the mower I was wondering if anyone else has tried them??

    Looks like the same getting stuck problem would continue, the update will allow the deck to go all the way up.

    My updated kit would allow my deck to get from 4 to 4.5 inches, but still not raise all the way up. I need to get a pick to the Hustler guys, but haven't had a chance to reinstall the kit just to have to take it right back of again. We don't have anything green around this area anyway to try it out on.

    I recived the new brackets and got stuck 2 times and than plate flipped forward and had to remove. Not been back on since.
    Would like to see something on the deck so could move more freely.

    We have just recently taken care of the flipping problem.
    We can ship another update to anyone that has the prototype test kit.
    Let me know

    OK, nobody jumped on this to see if the engineers got it right. I love my Hustler mower and would like to see Hustler get the strip kit right. I have the kit, if you want I will test the changes.
