Wow really? How much for it? And is the deck on it the old or new deck?

$8100 out the door...new deck. I could have gotten a snapper s150x with 52 inch deck for about 7 out the door but this is a 60 and the dealer is in my "backyard".

For the snapper I would have to pick it up two hours south and then use a different local dealer for service. I love the snapper value but love hustler simplicity and thoughtfulness in design and want to build a relationship with my dealer.

well...I haven't gone with the hustler yet...it has now come to my attention I can get the Snapper Pro s200xt 61inch with a kohler for 6899+tax and $200 back rebate...

8100 for 60 inch hustler x one i with closeby dealer I know...(and a Kawi Engine)

OR

6899+tax -$200 rebate card for Snapper Pro s200xt 61inch with Kohler...but buying from a dealer 2 hours away to be serviced locally by a dealer that is farther away and I'm unfamiliar with...plus might be mad I didn't buy from him...


Thoughts? By the way...I know I've been all over for this buying process and appreciate all your patience, understanding and advice...

Being finalized now. Went with local dealer I've worked with. Paid more for a (I think) more proven product but at 0% over 48 months. $1000 dollars difference but I am building a relationship with a dealer who I plan to work with a lot. Getting the 60 inch x one i with kawi for 7950 out the door...rather than the snapper s200xt 61 inch with a 29 Kohler. Would have been buying the snapper two hours away and had been having it serviced the town over...1000 dollars less for more horse power, less loyalty and in my eyes a Ford F150 vs a Ford F250...who knows...I love the simplicity and ruggedness of hustler and their overall brand philosophy. I do think snapper pro seems like a great value. Kinda like Hyundai is trying to prove themselves right now, I would still pay more for dealer loyalty to get the proven ford with fewer horses under the hood...I also prefer kawi to Kohler.

Yes please post some pics! I would love so see some pics of a freshly cut lawn or two also!! You should review this mower as the season passes. I don't think I have seen anyone review an X-Onei yet.

Really hoping to have it by Monday... Have a friend visiting Thursday through the weekend so I want to try and finish my week before he gets here...new mower should help...

But here's the big whammy. I have these two rural properties that are five acres each I do every other week...will be real nice to test the mower out in some heavily over grown pastures...

...maybe not the best thing for the break in period though...
