I'm not sure how new they are, but I haven't seen them in my area before, they got that handle bar steering, I'm looking at exmark and them (52" & 54"). I like them because their quite cheaper, but I don't want to double cut, I know exmark has a quite a cut to it and I like the ecs, I have yet to demo a hustler yet.....let me know what you think

I'm goint to Get Slammed By the Hustler Nuts but I didn't like H-Bar & there are a Few others who felt the Same Way...Prefer ECS...Twin Levers for Twin Hydro Pumps & Wheel Motors....Feel More in Control especially when doing Zero Turns...Able to subtly adjust wheel spin w/out affecting counter-rotating wheel !

Regardless the new Hustler Gatemaster or Gatestar w/ Pistols may be on my Shopping List for /05 depending on reviews !

Demoed a Hustler short cut with the H-bar and didn't like it either.. But I almost wish I would have taght myself to like it, as the machine was super cool...Especially the Hog attachment.. That thing would have helped me take lots of Realtor 's money... on foreclosure jobs....

I have one. Best walkbehind on the market.

The h-bar is the easiest controls to learn and use.
(Some old dogs don't like to learn new tricks though)

Cuts great, handles great

And yes I did try the others. I spent a couple years researching walkbehinds before I bought the hustler.

captken,

Just playin, They are different at least, but still freak me out. You do good with responses, esp. with hustler products.

Honestly, your posts are the reason I went with hustler for my z.

I think the H-bar is a very good setup. Very easy on the arms and easy to learn. Even this OLD pistol grip guy could learn the H-bar.

hustlers are so awsome. ive always liked them sense i first saw them, you dont see many around here. the next machine that i buy that is new is going to be a hustler for sure! they seem in all the posts ive read on here that they cut awsome, good on slopes and much more. that hbar is awsome....

i remember seeing a pic of someones equipment on here, he had like 4 or 5 Hustler Z's and a few hustler WB's. thats so cool IMO. I hope im big enough someday to have that many, but i have many many years to expand :)

get a less than 30 sec intro....

I just turn my back, and just let them figure it out...works for them and for me.

confidence inspiring and simple to use

I am going to get a 52 TTHP or 54 Hustler with handle bar controls for next spring. I really love the hustler bar design but the two exmarks that I have are great machines and cut great also. I guess that I need to go out and demo the hell out of both machines before the end of the season
