Hustler Fastrak SD vs Snapper Pro 125xt

60 inch vs 61 inch, same 24 hp Kawi and price difference is negligible. Which way do you go...full commercial snapper pro with 3400zt hydro or with trusty hustler but high end res/low end commercial... I am very intrigued by the value of snapper pro. Dealer quality is also negligible in this case.

I don't know anything about a snapper pro but I know lots about the fastrak super duty. I have 2 bit they have 54" decks. I didn't get the 60" decks because I was afraid of them being under powered. After owning the 54" I do believe the 60" would be under powered. My 54" have been and still are good mowers. They lay down a beautiful cut once set up correctly. They lack on the production side of things when compared to a true commercial mower.

Cool so it sounds like it would work for me but still not be as good had the true commercial mower maybe the snapper is a better choice? Anybody else have advice?

Actually just found out the hustler is 700 more than the snapper pro so they're not the same price

A better comparison would be the Snapper Pro s150xt. It has a commercial Kawa FX engine and zt5400 hydros.....its a beast. Same hydros Scag puts on the Cheetah ($10k mower).

All that plus the ICD deck makes it an amazing bang for the buck.

Thanks brules. You realize the fastrak sd only has 3100s and the 125xt has 3400s for less money right?

Yes, but the engine on the 125 is a step down. For truer "apples to apples" the 150 might be a closer model.

If you work it/wait till end of season/buy from a huge seller like SLE, you can get the s150xt for $6-6300. The FX + 5400's at that price is pretty amazing....

I just wanted to toss it out there. Good luck!

Problem is that's only a 52 inch. Could bump up to a s200 61 inch with a 36hp vanguard for 7550...what do you think?
