    Is it normal for a ztr to whine kinda loudly when your accelerating hard? My gravely isn't half as loud as this exmark I checked out today. Is this a sign of it pooping the bed? its a 60" with 1100 hours for 3000, but hes gona get 2500 he just doesnt know it yet.

    I noticed this also. One of the two reasons I chose to buy a Hustler. Second item was that you can not stop on an incline with the exmark. I am new to zero turn mowers and had no set loyalty to any brand. While testing the exmark in notice the whine and it has a separate park brake that you have to push the steering arms out before you remove your hand from them and pull the park brake. I have a 18' hyd tilt trailer and was worried I would have problems getting on and off of trailer. With the Hustler the brakes set as you move the arms out. I can pull my Hustler up in my trailer and stop without moving at all.
