Fastrak IZT

I've about decided on a Hustler Fastrak for my 1 acre of bermuda turf that I mow every 3 days during growing season. I'm impressed with the size and construction of this Z however, I'm hung up on the IZTs since I see better drive systems on some less expensive Zs.

I called Hustler and was told that the Hydro-Gear IZTs changed around March 2003 and that they now come with a "charge pump" which makes them better then before.

What is a charge pump and how much does this help the IZTs? I've been advised that "oh, you'll probably never wear out those IZTs" but I'm kinda picky when I spend this much money and don't see why I need to settle for a component that's not up to the same level as the other parts of the Fastrak. Maybe I'm too picky :confused:
