Thanks Man. I got your number still but had not heard anything out of you in awhile. I will give you a buzz when things finally slow down.

Not hearing from me is good. Means I'm hot and busy. Sod jobs every week it seems. Not big but steady. Now that the crap has slowed, I'm in the mood to talk about the crap.

For one time, yes it would be high. He's talking about $175 a month.

I have seen hustlers cut on SA and I really like it. I have a friend that's been in this business forever, he has used almost every brand out there and for the past 10 years its only been hustler for him. I'm strongly considering one of those as apposed to another Toro.

Hustler does leave a nice cut, easy to drive, and the deck goes up way higher than my zmaster. I'm actually selling my toro and buying another stander(42, RH, 20hp) in November.

Cut height is huge - can get to 5 1/4 on nice lawns and leave it flawless. The largest factor that I enjoy about the hustlers I have had is the speed. This one goes 12-13 mph. On large lawns with the HP I have in relation to deck size I have not had a issue with cutting at high rates of speed and leaving a good cut.
My production has increased to save me a large amount of time on several days this past week compared to the Ferris that I was using prior as the primary mower.

I just wanted to ad that anyone who has tried Hustler in the past but has not tried the VX4 deck should do so. I think you will enjoy it on our turfs.

I only run mulching mowers. With that speed are you mulching or discharging on that deck?
