    I own a MFT 42. My question is why doesn't Hustler want an under deck washing connection installed their units? Toro, CCadet, JD, all come with wash/hose connections. Washing prevents under deck buildup.

    The less water you put on your machine, the better off you are.

    We don't put them on there because for the most part they don't work.
    All your doing is packing water in the seems and grass under your deck at a very high rate, which would cause rust and eventually rot your deck out.
    Something to think about.... the mowers that have that washout port on them are all pretty cheap stamped deck type units.....
    As Gene mentioned in the above post, the less water around or on your mower the better.
