right side just infront of right transmission

I got a new Hustler Raptor sd 54 inch. I just love how it handles, but today with only 59.2 hours on it, the frame arm that connects just in front of the right transmission broke off, making the right wheel sit at an angle and the drive/pump belt came off, now I can't move anywhere.


Called my dealership they will come and pick it up. Has anyone else had this problem?

I am hoping they don't just weld it, I would like the broken piece replaced or a new mower.

pump bracket breaking NEW

the same thing happed to mine as well with only 112 hours on it. it seems to be a common problem and the dealer wants 200 dollars for a new set of heavy duty brackets to correct the problem. I think they need to send us new brackets at no cost since it is there bolts that are breaking.
