    pj, will using the wheel weights for the bac pac attachment enhance the stability of the machine on slops? I've got a big property to cut with real steep slopes. Last year on the steepest I wore cleats.

    What weights are you talking about ? the ones that come with the Bac-Vac ? these are the ones that mount on the front frame over the casters.
    The Hustler is designed and balanced for superior stability in most cutting conditions.
    There are no wheel weights (rear) for the Hustler Z or Super Z.
    With the Bac-Vac catcher on you need to add weight to the front of the unit, these weights are attached to the front of the frame, they are there to counter balance the catcher as it fills with grass and leaves. These weights come with the Bac-Vac catcher for this reason. As far as I know you can not buy them separately.
