Hustler M1

Not buying a new 21" (or 26") anytime soon, fingers crossed, but I was wondering if anyone has used or is using the Hustler M1? I looked at one at our Hustler dealer the other day and the mower looks almost identical to my Honda HRC216HXA. If I remember right, the Hustler M1 uses a Honda motor. Anyway, just curious. Thanks guys

I dont know if this model is discontinued or not. I thought it was fairly new I believe it's in the brochure we got about 3 months ago when my dad got his new Hustler. I looked at one in the showroom at our local Hustler dealer about 2 months or so ago.

Yea, no joke. Those M1's looks like tanks or something. Maybe that's where they got the name

If my memory serves me correctly, they are discounted. I looked at one and was quite taken back by how many moving parts the thing had. I think it has a dual blade system rigged with an fancy PTO, that might have been electrical. It seemed like a great deal of money so It was a pass for me Bought a Toro Commercial Mower with a Honda, it's the greatest thing since bread

The atomic blade that comes with them sucks at nulching. The self propel is very fast. I use a regular blade from a toro 21 in mine. Mulches decent that way. I have been checking at lowes and a few other places for a wavy mulch blade.

By the way the best mulching 21 I've used is a deere js40 with the swivel wheels.
