    PJ,
    Another thread on here mentioned something about sealant already in the tires that come on Hustlers. Could you elaborate? I have always put "Slime" in all of my mower and lawn tractor tires. Is this not necessary on new Hustlers?

    All the Hustler mowers come out of the factory with sealant in the tires.
    Just another added benefit to buying a Hustler mower.

    What brand of sealant comes in the new ones, and where can i get some ? I know its white, but I've never seen any white stuff for sale.

    I know that there wasn't any sealant in my fastrack. One of the front tires was not even on the rim when I picked it up. All the other tires were overinflated. Diamondjim

    Just pulled a nail out of the front tire on mine. Took the tire off to repair and there was no sealant inside. 2005 FasTrak, 52 in., 20 HP Honda! :blob3:

    I have just found out that the FasTraks stopped getting sealant in them sometime late last fall or winter.
    All commercial units still are being shipped with sealant in the tires.

    The fastrak that I picked up a few weeks ago has sealant in the tires. Maybe mine is a later model. I also noticed that it didn't have the clear strip of plastic on the gas tank that shows the gas level that I have saw on some of the others.

    That can't be saving Hustler a lot of money.
