I am still seeing a lot of interest in these forums from prospective Fastrak buyers. I was one of these folks last year and this site was very helpful to me in making my decision. What I thought I would do is start a thread where Fastrak owners could post their experiences with this machine so people could read them. Please include the year model, engine / deck combination, number of hours on your machine, how much you mow, etc. Also include any warranty or service issues and any and all opinions about the mower. Here's mine: 2006 20/52 Honda bought 5/06, paid 4657 plus tax. Seat spring kit and hour meter installed. 31 hours mowing 2.5 acres Had warranty service for some items that should have been adjusted in pre-delivery check, such an overtight bypass valve and a loose breather hose on the transmission that eventually came off. Was taken care of by regional sales rep. Have also had intermittent hot start problems that still show up now and then. Took care of tracking adjustment myself. Other than that this is an AWESOME machine. Has been very reliable, powerful, quiet, and is built like a frickin TANK. Workmanship is fabulous on this machine, and they used extremely heavy components, no cheap plastic anywhere. Ultra solid frame, bulletproof deck. Cut quality is excellent. REALLY wish there was a rubber discharge chute, I used one from a 52" Mini Z for a while but it was not a great fit so I went back to that steel monster. I HOPE OTHER OWNERS WILL POST HERE. I WOULD ACTUALLY LIKE TO SEE WHO HAS THE MOST HOURS!
