    I just got a Super mini z 52" 25hp kaw have been mowing with it for a while now and i am not able to stripe a yard because i have to keep over lapping. The discharge leaves a little bit of uncut grass and does not want to discharge properly and I'm getting sick of it I have bought the new blades and also had my dealer cut out the 1inch on top and 3inch on the bottom of the discharge area and still get the same problem i hated to spend 8,100dollars on the unit it to start with and i thought i was making a good investment but i see other cutters
    running circles around me with there mowers is it possible that the discharge is still to small. what should i do it only has 25hours on the mower. and also will it cost me to fix the mower when you have found the problem Thanks

    Post this in the Hustler forum on this site and see what P.J. can do for you. He has been helpful to other Hustler owners with problems.

    Is this a "daddy bought" mower? :angel: I see by your profile that you are 18 years old. Uncut grass on discharge side? wrong blade or blades? just learning to drive it? Inexperienced operator? I had my deck cut out per instructions, and it improved the cut. I have never experienced uncut grass on the discharge side unless I took too big a bite and skipped a strip.

    Talk to the factory and ask for customer service, technical support.

    Clean the underside of your deck, this messes up the airflow and will leave a poor cut. Make sure you have the correct blades as well. I have the Super Z and I did the deck mod. as well and have experienced great results.

    I all ways clean the underside of the deck and i bought the blades from the dealer and i hope they know what kind of blades go on it i got the best ones they offered it was the new designed blades and the dealer was the one to cut the deck and my family is poor i payed for it my self I'm 19 now I think people need to work for what they get because you have more respect for your equipment and you take better care of it unlike a lot of teens/mature adults if there parents buy them something they hotrod it or do stupid stuff because they did not pay for it they don't care how much it cost they think if it brakes dad will fix it (BS get a job like everyone Else) at some point people need to grow up in to adult hood and take responsibility for them selfs.

    After 12 years of public schooling, did they not teach you where the punctuation marks are on the keyboard. My fiance is almost out of college and she still types like periods and question marks don't exist either. As for your problem, I would figure that if the blades are correctly installed and the deck is cleaned out and providing the correct air flow pattern I would have to say that it is something that you are doing yourself while operating that machinery that is porblematic. I have a Hustler as well, and as long as the deck stays clean, I get a top notch cut quality. When the deck starts getting grass built up underneath though, the cut quality goes downhill quick.

    Well no schools these days do not spend enough time with each person and most teachers do not care like they use to and since i have a reading and spelling problem i was put in resource English for 4 years and was taught the same stuff over and over every year never learning something new and the only problem i had was basic reading and speech and writing if the teacher would have spent the time to help me in through Fields i could have been out of resource English in say 2 years but no they had to teach what the majority of the kids had problems with and mine was not one of them sry that i can't help to not know where to put the . and ? marks in a sentences and yes i know they go at the end of a sentences but all my sentences are run-ons and i did get my diploma but what makes me mad is to see like my brother witch has nothing and has a kid on the way at only 22 years of age he is lazy like a lot of younger teens and mature adults these days my generation is going to rune the world because my generation is lazy like my brother and also i know my brother can make 10 time the money i make only if he apply him self he could be in a office doing something i can only dream of doing because of my reading,spelling, and speech disability i have no choice but to work hard and hustle the rest of my life not just office jobs but like doctor or a loyler.
