    Word of warning about a hitch... I pulled a roller with an older Scag and tore up a wheel motor. i know Husstlers are tuff, but I would make sure it wouldn't void the warranty.

    I used a piece of 6"x4" angle iron, and a 2"x4" block of wood to make one. (4) 3/4" bolts hold it in place. Works well for just about any towable lawn tool. Cost about $10 to make.

    Just buy the factory hitch. I got one on my Mini-Z, got it for $21 from dealer.

    I've used mine quite a bit to pull my aerator (est weight of about 350-400lbs). Never had any problems, but it's still soon...only have a little over 200 hours. I also run Mobil 1 in the hydros (as well as engine).

    I will be upgrading next year to probably a SuperZ, as I need more engine a lot of the time.
