Hustler Super Z xr7 2007

I am very disappointed in these machines. I bought two around July of 2007, and that was the bigggest mistake I made.
One has around 740 hours on it and I had to get the engine (30 Kohler) rebuilt, and the other has 1,000 hours on it and it needs to get rebuilt (actually in the shop). After I had the first engine rebuilt by a Hustler dealer, 40 hours later, the engine is still no good. It smokes like no other, looses power, and runs on one cyclinder. Each machine has had over 2 sets of pumps replaced on them so far.
I have contacted Hustler several times and yet takes days to return my calls, and after talking to them, still no answer. They admitted that the kohler engine does has several problems. They are working on the pumps for a new design, but still no answer.
As of now, I am down 2 almost brand new machines, so I had to go out and buy a BOB-Cat, and a DIXIE CHOPPER.
I am very disappointed in these Hustler machines, and WILL NOT BUY ANOTHER. I would not recommened a HUSTLER machine to anyone.
