    We Have A Hustler Super Z That Keeps Blowing The 10 Amp Fuse The Moment You Turn The Ignition Switch On. Haven't Found The Source Of The Problem Yet. Has Any One Had This Problem Or Any Suggestions.

    If you experience this as soon as power is applied, one thing to check is to see if you have a direct short to ground. Make sure no dust has accumulated over the switch contact poles. Check for nicked wires up against metal. If you have a VOM, check your resistance from ground to the wire.

    Thanks. I Found Wire Up Against The Exhaust Manifold. The Wire Insulation Was Melted Away Exposing Bare Wire. The Damaged Wire Was Replaced And Re-routed Away From The Problem Area. The Super Z Works Great Now.
    Thanks Again.
