    I looked at a Mini Z today. I'm a little concerned about spindles that I can't grease. Should I be?

    Is the 17 horse Kawasaki a good choice for someone who cuts 4 yards per week (I'm not commercial, I cut some elderly's for free)

    The dealer has a 17 horse at a greatly reduced price and really wants to get rid of it.

    I have a 52" Mini Z; the engine choice should be 19 or 23 hp in Kawasaki.....the one you looked at is probably a 19.

    Spindles should not be a problem; if one does go bad, it can be rebuilt in just a few minutes with bearings from just about any parts house. 3 year warranty on the spindles, by the way.

    They're excellent machines, you can't go wrong. You can ask any question you may have in the Hustler forum here on Lawnsite, the factory rep is very helpful.
