    i know the main things to maintain a mower... but, is there anything to especially make sure i do with my mower? i just bought it and it has 335 hours on it with a brand new clutch... the dealer put new pulleys and spindles on...

    i'm hoping there's nothing that is strange to worry about on the hustler, but i also don't want to have issues...

    thanks much

    I would get an owners manual and follow recommended service guidelines. It seems a little unusual that it would need a clutch, pulleys and spindles at that low of hours.

    they just replaced them for me as a convenience... the clutch was an accident... the owner ran over a mound of dirt and burnt it up accidentally.. .the others were totally necessary but he said one pully was a little loose and one spindle was a little messy so he just replaced them all for me as a nice gesture...

    i just wondered if anyone with a hustler had any insights into special things to do to make them better...

    Meaning what? This is average life of these parts,or what. If so I'm on borrowed time.
