View Full Version : Hustler Fastrack Owners

I bought a 20HP/52" model earlier this year, and it does a great job cutting my 1.5 acre lot.

Has anyone experimented with double blades on this mower? I have a set of gatorblades ready to be installed for the spring, but I am really curious as to how doubles would work on this mower. I tend to cut my grass high in the summer (all sun), and I have an irrigation system.

My main complaint with the mower so far has been that the clippings are a bit on the long side, and tend to lay on top of the lawn.

Also, has anyone rigged up any kind of stripe kit for the fastrack?

I have a Hustler 54" WB with doubles. Adding doubles to your mower, if it's capable, will chop the grass finer, and the added vacuum/blowing of the doubles will throw and disperse the grass much better. I'd also ask the dealer to check and/or adjust the motor (keeping in specs), to give 3,600 rpm "underload", instead of no load.
