Hustler 42 raptor vs Toro 42 timesaver

I'm looking at the hustler vs toro in the 42 " frame. Both have the Kawasaki 21.5 engine. Everything about them are close to the same, except the toro is a stamped deck, but seems to have a couple of more whistles and bells, (speed control, blade assist, and higher seat. Warranty's look similar...

I would like some opinions which way I should consider, they are comparable in cost. I will be bagging when necessary, I can't find any prices on line for the hustlers catcher. That will be a consideration as well... Has the raptor performed well since its been out? I need to replace for a last years Dixon that kept throwing the drive belt at dealer expense but I couldn't take it any longer. I mow a flat half acre with lots of trees and planted beds...

Thx for the reply...a raptor is being delivered this morning. Being made in Kansas was one of the reasons it was chosen.

I saw this thread and was wondering which would be better, a new raptor or a used fasttrack with around 300 hours? I would be using it to mow around 10 lawns. I know everyone will tell me to buy a commercial mower but I dont have enough money. Thanks!
