WTB Hustler Trimstars

I am interested in multiple Hustler Trimstar mowers with 54" decks and 1 Hustler Trimstar with a 36" deck. All must be 2010 and newer (meaning have to have deck lift lever). Please let me know.

Thanks Jamie

Big Dog also has their model which looks a little cheaper in price and the only difference I see is red.

If you don't mind me asking why are you specifically looking for this style of used WB? (im not heckling, Im interested in your insight and motivation)

Yes Big Dog's only difference is red, however I am only interested in the Hustler line (both made by Excel). TPendagast I only run Hustler WB's in my business.

I'm switching one of my setups over to this too. You got me thinking a wb will be cheaper to operate. The TS has the nicest controls I've tried and I'm adding a Kage sulky. It will be mine at first to see if it does save time. Plus I need the 36 for gates and I want one mower on the trailer.

I have a 54" trimstar (2012 model) however not for sale they are great mowers. Cheaper then the exmark with the tthp style bars. Just as good of a mower. I like mine better without a velke, seems easier to control without velke. With velke the mower seems to walk side to side and is harder to mow in a straight line

Do you find they are easier to train an inexperienced, largely revolving workforce on how to operate?

Ie is there less of a learning curve because the operation is more intuitive?
