Hustler manual By karnsguy in forum Hustler Forum. Doc PeteJul 6, I doubt the deck is causing an excessive load, but you can remove the belt and check each spindle to see that they are OK Any ideas what could be wrong? This whole problem is likely the result of my shoddy maintenance. I paniced and shut it off. Originally Posted by KennyV.

Hustler Z problem - any ideas?
The pto switch is also in your interlock path, you will have to look close as to what pair need to be shorted to complete the circuit The problem seems to be that the engine just is way down on power. It sounds fine until I start loading it down then it falls on it's face. It's only got 47 hours on it, I'm hoping problems like this aren't the norm. Today I was mowing on a very level part of my lawn and the mower started making what sounded like a rattling noise and the left steering wasn't responding as quickly as normal. This pulley was sitting on the frame, some of the fins got banged up when it came off. I will not take it to a dealer unless absolutely necessary but I need to get parts.
