The new Hustler vac looks alot like the Proteros. They went from a horizontal impeller to a vertical. I'm not happy.
Ive had bad experiences with vertical blower units also. Which has me looking at Grasshoppers and Toro/Exmarks since I haven't found a nice used Huster with the older deck and blower yet.
