Mowing along today in my 2 year old, 84 hour Hustler 48" Fastrak. I am under the pine treeline on the property adjacent to 1000 acres of timber. The engine sputters and dies, as I look over my shoulder it's a sheet of flame. So the pine tree above the mower ignite too, I run for the hose and I'm glad to find I can put out the fire in the trees and keep them wetted down, but I can't put out the fire. The fire is also now on the ground. I yell for the wife to call the fire department and settle in to keep the trees wet and the full saddle tank cooled down as it burns. Fire department shows up, dispatches of the fire Daugher gets her pic taken with a fireman's sweat bucket. A fireman asks, "Howdya like the mower?" I like it a lot when it's not on fire. I bought this mower new with 1 hour on it from the original owner in June of 2009. It only has 80 hours on it, I have had it 22 months, I don't know if I have the paperwork to prove the warranty on this mower. SUCKS. has anybody had anything like this happen and what did you do? I know this is totally wrong - near commercial grade mowers just don't blow up and burn at 80 hours, that is practically new - but what can I do?
