    I ordered some Gator Blades from some people who used to work at Mid South Sweepers in Memphis Tenn. The Hustler dealer that went out of business....

    Maybe he and the people who worked for him "hustled" their customers....and that's why we have no dealer....

    So, it looks like good ole captken got Hustled himself....

    Good thing is that I didn't put any money up front....

    And I do not intend to purchase them...

    However they do have my Shin T-270 in for repairs...

    Plan to get that puppy out and...never go back!

    And buy my needed blades on-line...

    Been tryin to get Hustler Gators for about 2 months now....

    In Memphis Tenn...

    Tried Bartlett Small Engines....

    Told they were ordered.....never got them....
    Got P***ed off and told Bartlett Small Engines to forget it...

    What's up, Excel, Hustler?

    Was told that Gator Blades had to come from Hustler Turf?

    Why the high price?

    Answer please...PJ.

    They made an error when ordering the gator blades.

    I don't know about you all, but I am a mistake making human being....sometimes, I get hot headed....after an exhausting day of mowing.....

    Everyone makes mistakes and no one is perfect.

    I got the blades I needed, 3 sets for the Hustler Z, and 2 sets for the Hustler walkbehind, at the correct price...once the error was noted.

    Good work and good luck to Glenn and David, thanks.
