    We had initially planned on building a 60" 27hp Kohler Super Walk Behind, but due to lack of dealer and end user interest we have decided to not build the unit.

    The 54" super WB is only 6” smaller than a 60”. After 20 passes on a lawn you’re only talking another 2 passes that a 54 would have to make to equal the 60”. Also, the 54 really gets into a lot of places that the 60” would not. I’ve been very happy with my 54” and if a WB is what you are looking for, I’d demo the 54” and decide for yourself.

    How about a super walk with a 72" deck (same deck as the super Z) and the sit down sulky standard? I like having the deck out in front of me where ai can see it better. This would be great for open areas.

    That sucks!!!!! I wanted a 60" swb or 2. My helper also wanted one as well. We are using 52'' machines right now and want to go to a bigger deck with better controls. Now it looks like we might be able to get a bigger deck but without the best controls. (exmark here we come) :( :(
    We're using Ferris machines now that don't have a floating deck and by the end of the day -long days our hands are sore. we went and looked at the 54' hustler and liked it alot. But I just can't see buying a new machine that won't cut my mowing time down.

    PS- please reconsider " Make it and they will come." I'll take 2

    The President of Hustler Turf Equipment reads these posts everyday, and he is very interested in making what end users want.
    If there are any changes in this matter I will let you know.

    The hustler SWB's are the only Wb's out there that can actually cut at 10 mph (I'm using doubles). Also, no other WB's have 20 inch diameter 10 wide tires (as on the SWB) that are as big as the some ZTR's, which is the only way you can cut that fast.
    I believe you really won't miss those 6", which actually is only about 5", since the 54 is almost 55.
    Next, if you add together the H bar steering, compared to any other WB the SWB will more than make up for a small loss in mowing width. I'd demo an SWB with a bullrider and see for yourself. You won't have sore hands, that's for sure..............

    switchless- what engine do you have on your swb? 25 hp kaw? Hows the gas usage? Any fixes to the clumping problems with the decks yet? The grass is starting to take way to long to dry up now up here in new hampshire. I will have to go and see if I can demo a mach. How many problems have you had with yours- closest dealer is 1hr-1.5 hr away one way :(
    HUSTLER really needs to get some dealers closer than central mass. Thanks Joel
