PJ, My dealer repaired the leaking hyd line. I have complained since day 1 that my mower doesn't have the power that my 21 hp Kubota has. Well, he tried it out! Guess What? He agrees! He has Tech reps scratching their heads. Called Ring Power they said" they don't work on Mowers". I haven't given up on Hustler but getting real close.. If it wasn't for my dealer Hustler would be history. Any chance on Hustler replacing this unit. 70hrs on this and it has be nothing but problems.
