    There is a used 2009 48" Trimstar locally and I'm wondering how much difference there is from the newer models. I don't know much about these mowers and was looking at the Hustler site to find some info but could only find the specs/features of the new models. If I go with the '09 model is there anything I wish I would have on the newer one? Also what's a fair price for this model with less than 200 hours on it and in good shape?

    Thanks,
    LW

    If it is a 2009 model year then it is almost identical to the current TrimStar.
    The only difference is the new ones are EPA compliant as of 1/1/2011 which means they have a different engine and fuel system.

    I ended up buying the 2009 this weekend. It isn't identical. The deck adjustment is still the old pin type and it has the round tube control tower so maybe it is an older model?

    That would be the model year 2008 and later model.
