I just received a Hustler Shortcut 1500 48" bac vac for FREE. It had been sitting outside for 5 years under pine trees. Seat is deteriorated, wiring jacked up, oil was chocolate syrup. Cleaned carb, replaced fuel lines and filter, oil and filter changed... carb cleaner while jumping the solenoid and the mower runs drives cuts a little weak. But it runs. Mower pulls to the right, maybe a hydraulic linkage adjustment? Found oil leak bad from from main seal so now time for an overhaul. Does anyone have access or have copy of an old manual or parts listing. Thanks, how cool is it to mow as if you were riding an ATV lol.

Tried, nada. Called a dealer and they were not too helpful. They had the info but wasn't giving info out. Might have to pay the deal to service hydraulic.
Did you try here ?

Call them, e mail what ever. They are the parent company of Hustler. Let them know how the dealer is treating you.

Anyone know how to identify a Kawasaki FH680V-???? (The last 4 digit) all identifying markings have gone ghost. I know it's a FH680V from the gentleman who gave me the machine.

Just realized, there is only one filter on the hydraulic unlike newer zero turns circa 2001+ that have one on each pump...unless I missed something on this machine. Still can not find service manual or parts listing, everything is..."oops maybe I shouldn't do that" and "hhmmm, I guess that goes there" mentality.

Cleaned off the grime to double check where leak(s) are coming out of.

I'm suspecting leak from governor, oil refill tube and from what looks like an oil sensor plug...located above oil filter.
