    Hey , im currently thinking of buying either a Hustler diesel or kubota zd28, but the Hustler diesel has gone off the website and i was wondering if there was a new one coming out. The reason i ask is because i do alot of mowing around houses and built up areas and the noise is an issue, the cat engine was noisier than i really hoped for. If hustler bring a new model out with a Kubota engine thats quieter i would buy it, its like the perfect mower, a really strong frame and a really quiet ,efficient engine.!

    Could you please say if there is a new one coming out with a new engine and maybe give a few specs on it, (even if its unofficial):laugh:

    Thanks

    They don't even tell me these things anymore, so no I don't have any time frames at all.
    Sorry.

    The Hustler is loud. I have a Kubota ZD-21 not near as loud... My Hustler hasn't been anything but trouble. Only 79 hours and 4 major problems.
    Hyd pump, muffler cracked, hyd hoses leaking, out of time, bad injector pump.

    But, Hustler is picking it up and I will have a new Super Z with a 30hp gas.

    I have a friend who has a diesel, bought it the same day, not a mins problem.

    I think Hustler put out a good product, i just happened to get a lemon.

    I didnt go for the Hustler in the end , i went for a JD 997, , i was going to look at kubota aswell but the dealer never called me back, so john deere it was , its a nice robust refined machine.

    Thanks
    Greg
