dtimmel wrote:2) You all recommend not using the OEM charger, and buying a 4 bank 6+ amp alternative. How do you use one? Is it necessary to unhook the serial battery cables each time, or it is possible to permanently wire a set of charger cables to each battery, run them to an accessible location, and plug in the charger to those each time without having to open the battery compartment and do a lot of hooking and unhooking?

In addition to some LED lights, I'll be fabricating an attachment for the electric Johnny Bucket jr. I previously had on a Craftsman lawn tractor. And would seem really handy to be able to use an inverter, (obviously Zeon as a mobile battery stand, not engaging the mower deck) since this Zeon will have more stored energy than my Escape Hybrid. Any of those uses would be less draw than the mower deck, but they are 12 volt.
dtimmel wrote:3) Am I correct that closest Hustler model to a Zeon is the Sport? Since the Zeon grass catcher is no longer available from Hustler, I was able to determine that the critical deck attachment parts were the same #s for the Zeon as for the still-available Sport bagger kit, so I ordered those parts and am fabricating my own frame on which to hang a Craftsman 3-bagger I had around.

But was momentarily flabbergasted to be suddenly front in the air, looking at the sky, drive wheels spinning, testing the seatbelt and wheelie brackets. Learn the hard way I guess.
dtimmel wrote:I can already report that the 42" deck attachment for the Sport bagger fits perfectly on the Zeon. What does not look applicable is the frame, because the rear end of the mower is different on the ZEON, so I did not even try ordering that. The kit from Hustler is pretty expensive.
