So I'm now trying to decide between the Cub Cadet Z-Force 54 or the Hustler FasTrak SD 54. There's about a $2,000 difference and better financing with the Cub, but the Hustler is top of the line residential with a better warranty.
I'm only going to be mowing for about an hour a week, so the Hustler may be overkill. If I have any problems with the Cub, the dealer is less than 2.5 miles away. My sales rep said if I'm not happy with the Cub, I can return it an buy a Hustler.
