    I Own A 60'' 2001 Hustler Z That Has 402 Hours On It. In The Last Couple Of Lawns That I Have Mowed, My Mower Has Been Pulling To The Right. Witch Leeds Me To Believe, That I Have Hydro Pump Either Going Bad, Or There Is A Problem With The Wheel Motor It Self. All My Matainance Is Kept Up With Very Well, And My Mower Only Has 400 Hours On It. I Have Never Had Any Problems With My Mower Before At All. Is There Any Common Problems With The Hdro System, Or Wheel Motors, And If So Whats The Best To Fix It. Any Info Would Be Greatly Appreciated. Thanks Mjm928

    There are couple things it could be, have you checked your tire pressure?
    Check your parking brakes to make sure they are hanging up also, that would slow down the wheel motor.
    There are no particular problems with any of our hydraulic systems.
    Your dealer can find out what the problem is, if you cant figure it out.

    Check the bypass valve nuts make sure they haven't opened a little. Actually had this happen on a couple of mowers. Won't hurt to check it out.
