Serious question folks. I up and made a decision to go with the Hustler Sport 42" with the Honda. Took it to the parking lot for a ride and was extremely disappointed. At anywhere from idol to full throttle the motor surged badly. If the PTO is engaged it was better but still there. I am not talking about a little surge I am guessing north of a 1000 rpm's. You could not drive it very far without back pain, difficult loading on a trailer and just plain sounded terrible. The kicker is the dealer has 4 of these and we ran them all. Same thing! Is this something that will fix itself or is that the nature of the beast. Salesman says he thinks it's just bad gas from them sitting. I expected the Honda to just purr like a kitten, should it???? I want it for my half acre lot and maybe my kids a few times a year. They do have one with a Briggs but I really wanted the Honda.
