However, I did find a few Hustler dealers in my area so this would not be too big of an inconvenience as far as service goes if I went with Hustler.
As far as W/B's go, I don't think you could find a better pair of machines, however, I need to choose one and I've been leaning more towards the TT because of the higher blade speed and better cut. With the Hustler, you get 2 more horses and my understanding is the control system compared to the ECS controls are outstanding, unfortunately, I have not had the opportunity to demo either as of yet.
Please tell me your thoughts and experiences with both of these machines.
I have a TT, love it. Demoed the Hustler wb, hated the controls. You'd think it would handle great, it sure didn't. Hope you like divots.....
