I know that the peeling paint issue has been discussed, but I was wondering what Hustler does when a customer has this problem. Do they re-paint the mower or replace it? I have a 2003 37" walk behind with 32 original hours. I am beginning to see the paint coming off and would like to do something. I am considering trading it in for a new one with the powder coated paint. I realize that equipment depreciates rapidly once it "leaves the showroom" but was wondering if there is any type of program in place for the paint situation. I really like the mower, it is my first Hustler after having 8 other commercial mowers but I am worried that within the next two years my mower will be in terrible cosmetic condition. Any help that you could give PJ would be greatly appreciated.
