Customer Question

My hustler fast track is 5 yrs old. For the past 4 months, I am having issues with loss of power. After 20-25 min of mowing, it starts cutting out with loss of power. Many time (not Always), it bogs down as is go uphill. I have had in the dealer with no solution. They checked plugs, it has had full and regular service. Today I would mow until it bogged down, shut it off for 15 min. It does fine for 20 min and then bogs down again. Thanks Marc

Get spark tester and check spark when it acts up. If spark is erratic or no spark, replace the bad coil. Less than $50.00 for coil on Ebay.
