I have to give my props to the boys at hustler. We have been running hustler for 6 years now we started with a 60 inch super z and the mower has almost 3 thousand hours on it and still runs and cuts great. We added two 72 inch super z's to the trailor one is a liquid cooled and the other a fuel injected xr-7 and the fuel injected is my favorite but I would cut with any of them any time. They are tuff enough through regular mowing and clean ups year in year out and these ones get worked hard all day every day. Best on the market in my opinion.

I like the suspension on the IS2000Z. Havn't ridden any other though. In 3yrs had to buy a hydraulic reservoir $80, two back tires -worn , two front tires-nails, gas gauges don't work-need to try to reglue with something that can handle the gas/ethanol, High lift and hockey puck took out the impeller-bagger, two idler pulleys-bagger.
Has over 900 hrs seems there's some oil where the line connects to the wheel motor.
I drive it full speed on several lawns and sharpen the blades twice a week. I'd buy it again.

I have a Walker 20 hp with a 36" deck. So far I am very happy with it. It gives a beautiful cut with a nice "golf course" look to the lawn. It took a few lawns to get used to the steering and manoeuvring but I got the hang of it. Compact mower with a large grass catcher. Great machine!

the thread died because everyone on LS knows that walker is the best mower for 1/2 acre or less and can adapt the be better then good on larger areas with the right deck
and that the rest of the mowers just fill the market going down the list from there and most will say exmark and scag would be 1-2 again depending on the size of their lawns

I run a Dixie Chopper and a Snapper Pro. Love them both, but the Dixie Chopper is tough, strong, and have had no issues at all.

I am new to the site, I am running a Dixie Chopper I bought used for this season but buying new one next season. Choices between Ex-mark, Dixie Chopper and Hustler. I haven't made my mind up yet
