John Deere WB

Does anybody have any experience with the WH52 walkbehind model? I was looking at them and thats one sweet mower. Just wondering how they do.

I am looking for same info you were asking about. I have a hustler trimstar but like the look of the WH52. I would like to demo one to compare.

I demoed one, it cut nice but was very clumsy and bulky to operate. I personally didnt like it but you'll have to try it yourself. The Hustler Trimstar is faster and easier to operate.

Were the controls for driving the JD not easier then the hustler? I like the hustler but once the glue holding the grips gets soft in hot weather, it is not as much fun. I will demo one soon I hope so I can compare. The JD controls look like the gravely.
