Hey guess what you are wrong about Dixie Chopper front end I put a tape on mine and its 63'' wide VS your hustler is 57'' And my Rear end is 70'' and yours is 60'' So yours would roll easier then mine

By the way on the tires My max air pressure is 7lbs

Whats the max air pressure on yours rear tires and what pressure do you run?

No, it is a 2003 bought last year with 600 hours. The ZD326P is a 2007 bought in 2012 for 5200 with 1100 hours that has the vacuum collection system.

The 2xx series are all 2WD but the 4xx series are all 4WD but are articulating, not qualifying for this discussion. The 4xx series have dual wheel options for great stability on slopes just like Ventrac, see link.

Going back to the 220, they are all 2wd. The weight transfer hydraulics make them hard to beat even with a 4WD SCUT. I have used my 230 for detail work brush hogging and was stuck once only due to the NH TN70A tractor tracks filled with ground water and I lost ground clearance. This is the 230 going up a hill.

I wasn't aware of that, I thought the 72 were the same spacing in the front as a normal chopper. The mower is taller and has all kinds of sharp edges to cut yourself on if you got excited and decided to bail. I demoed a 74 incher and it did not have a front end that wide or maybe I did not notice. I seriously looked at buying a Dixie before I bought my Hustler because they made a 15 MPH Z but the dealer showed me what happens to them when you hit stuff going 15 MPH and said the Hustler took a hit much better.

They sold Chopper and Hustler and the mechanics showed me one where the front wheel assembly had snapped off from a high speed impact.

So I bought the Super Z, they did not however tell me the Super ate wheel motors.
