    On the HUSTLER web site they have a link that you can follow to find the closest dealer by your zip code. Northeast mowers is the closest to me (by about 2:30 - 3:00 hours) but I don't like dealing with them at all! For that reason I may start going to the place about 3 hours away!:cry:

    Why don't you like north east mowers? What did they do or not do for you? I don't like driving there it is about 90 miles round trip. I love my hustler but I need to get it serviced, I want to do it myself but I don't want to void the warranty. Any advice would be helpful

    I don't like N.E. because they rude every time that I have to deal with them. They sold the Hustler to me with the tracking WAY off, the tires filled to 45 - 50 PSI, etc, etc, etc. I had to contact P.J. & he contacted Chad for me to basically MAKE Northeast Mowers allow me to demo this HUSTLER, they told me that they wouldn't do that. Just VERY poor customer service in general. The lady up front, Lisa, doesn't like me & I don't blame her. I'm an a-hole most of the time because they're geared more towards the lazy lawn guy. Not the ones that actually want to make money. IMHO I just don't like N.E., others may love N.E. That's why I say IMHO. I tried to get them to look at the connection for the clutch on my mower today (because it wasn't working, then it would, then it wouldn't. She told me to leave it all day. But she also told me that they might find nothing wrong at all?
