Hey all, I have been lurking out here reading all the post for the last year but never officially signed up to join the fun. By the way, I have the Fasttrak 48 inch with Honda engine and flex forks. I just installed the mulching baffles this past weekend. Now my question, I ready previously that there was a heat shield available as I surely need one. Each time I stop for any length of time I burn the grass. I purchased my Hustler from Plainfield Equipment in Plainfield IN and I called them inquiring about the heat shield but they said they didn't know anything about it - have a part number or anything. Anybody have any suggestions?
