They delivered my Hustler Mini Fastrak 36" w/ the Kohler Courage 15 hp engine last night and since I'm not scheduled to mow my lawn until the weekend after next, I can't post my impressions until then. Although since I bought this sight unseen, relying mainly on information gleaned from this forum, I noticed the unit was a little noisy, and I thought I heard the hydro transmission groan or hiss when the driver made a zero turn on my driveway. Is this normal? Meanwhile, I've always wanted a striping kit for my next mower, and since this model does not have a striping kit, I was thinking of getting one of those roller striping kits like the one being sold at www.lawnstriper.com. Since this rolling striper has to be towed, I was wondering if the Mini Fastrak is strong enough to pull this thing around while mowing at the same time. What is the towing capacity of this model in terms of maximum tongue weight and maximum load? Will it not shorten the life of the Mini Fastrak, especially the fragile/delicate EZT integrated hydro transmission that this thing has, at least in comparison with the IZT unit? And will it void the warranty? And for $89, am I not better off just waiting for Hustler to sell a striping kit for this model in the future? Also, the document that came with the unit said it has a 2 year residential warranty but the Hustler website says its 3 years. I wonder which one is correct and how do I communicate this to the dealer or to Hustler? Thanks for any reply.
