    I am looking to buy or Lease a Hustler mini Z in the spring and The one I was looking at has the 24 Honda on it . So Im looking for for people who have working experience with the motor to tell me what they think of it and if its worth trying. I have kawi motors on other mowers and have had good luck with them, but Im not affraid to try something new. BTW, The dealer wants $500 extra for a mini z with a 23 Kawi on it.

    Thanks for any help

    Jusmowin and Bayfish,

    I am purchasing my first mower and leaning towards the Hustler Z 24 hp Honda and 60 in deck. Dealer gave me price of around $7500. Is this a good price? If you don't mind giving details what did you guys pay? Thanks for your help.

    Earlier this year I priced a 25/60 super z for 7700.IMO thats more than 200.00 worth of difference.

    Ive heard that there is not much info on these motors & mowers around my area as Hustler is new to us and the 24 honda is mostly used on the larger generators, although Im still interested in this motor so if anyone has info on this motor PLEASE lets here it

    The Hustler Z listed for $9400, I got it for $7200 with dealer incentives. That put it at $200.00 over the comparable Toro and I feel it's a better mower. I grabbed it. My observations of the two side by side is that the Hustler is built heavier and I always liked Honda motors. Very pleased with it so far.
