    I'm a lucky (hopefully) owner of a brand new Hustler Fast Track 36" (Honda V-Twin). It's my first mower bigger than a 21" and I made it through the learning curve this week unscathed. I know a little about it, maintenance, adjustments, the ins and outs. I hear it is easy to work on and cheap to replace parts. I feel it'll treat me well, but I just want to know, from other owners and such, what should know about this product. Anything to watch out for, any problems that may arise, any weak points on the mower that could suddenly leave me walkin' behind my 21" again. Me knowing the relevant issues of this mower ought to keep the money rolling in as it should.

    One specific question: Does it matter whether I turn the key at full throttle or 1/2?

    Thanks fellas.

    I think you should turn it a half so you don't start out at high RPMs. I think it is alot easier on the engine, but I'm not completely sure. It does however sound correct.
