check out the Hustler Fastrak it is on par with the Badboy CZT and really close in price. But the Warranty is a lot better with the Hustler and the deck on that model has more reinforcements then the badboy and should be a little stronger.

hustler screams quality and badboy is trying to create the cheapest commercial mower by shaving "useless parts" wherever they can. this always makes me cautious because a company with as much experience as hustler usually doesnt add something to a mower that doesnt absolutely have to be on it.

You will be happy with your decision. Good business sense on your part. Go with the proven machine. Let others take the risk of testing a newer brand selling at low prices.
