The unit your looking at there is not a TrimStar, it is the original Hustler hydro walk behind, in fact its a rare one to find used, its a Super Walk Behind, those are the stock mufflers.
It is a 25hp 54" unit.

i didnt even read the title:hammerhead: must be a beast with 25hp? is there much difference in that one versus a trim star? i am concidering a 48'' trimstar also from a member here for about 1200 more, and 4 years newer

It is a beast, people still call looking to buy these Super Walk Behinds, they love the hp.
Lots of differences, the older unit uses 2 pumps and 2 wheel motors, the new TrimStars use integrated hydros.
The older unit is long, the newer units are short.
For the price I would go with the Super Walk Behind, as long as the engine and hydros are strong.
