Wow. Shows you the innovation of you guys at Hustler. Im sure it has its place, primarily as a resi unit.
Im glad to see the push/trim mower out from Hustler too, I would like to have Hustler produce trimmers and blowers too, then I could get all my equipment from the same place.

Id love to see the same thing, Only problem is there isnt any money in thoes. They are a convience for a dealer to offer to their customer. (and sometimes not worth the headache, lol)

I like the train of thought that Hustler is going for, I'm sure as time goes on they will continue to improve on this platform and maybe someday make a commercial unit that could be recharged through solar panels on our trailers.

Never do anything that you don't enjoy doing, but if you have to, charge well for it.

I'd buy one right now for a reasonable price. I have a ton of customers that would love to see me trying to be green. They hate me as it is burning gas all day long. What a good piece of P/R

Alright!

I may end up eventually buying a hustler after all! Any updated info. on the pricing?

Also just saw it for the first time on the website, and watched the video. Reminded me to check back in here and see if maybe more info. was here. How hard is it to take off / get at the deck for cleaning?

Pricing and availability information is not available at this time.
As to the deck, you would lift or jack the front of the mower up to change the blades or clean the deck.

Zeon

Nice to see someone in the industry is taking the big step towards renewable fuel. I know the duty cycle isn't ready for true commercial use but its a big step forward. The Hustler Turf staff should be congratulated and the rest of the OEMs need to get involved.
