    The wheels you see are installed on every Hustler riding mower.
    They are stabilizer wheels, in the rare case that the mower may want to tilt back when running on a slope, these wheels will stop the mower in most cases from coming over.
    A proper mowing plan and safe slope operation will help prevent the possibility of this happening.
    They also help when loading and unloaded on steeper trailer gates and such.
