    I'm not sure how new they are, but I haven't seen them in my area before, they got that handle bar steering, I'm looking at exmark and them (52" & 54"). I like them because their quite cheaper, but I don't want to double cut, I know exmark has a quite a cut to it and I like the ecs, I have yet to demo a hustler yet.....let me know what you think

    I'm goint to Get Slammed By the Hustler Nuts but I didn't like H-Bar & there are a Few others who felt the Same Way...Prefer ECS...Twin Levers for Twin Hydro Pumps & Wheel Motors....Feel More in Control especially when doing Zero Turns...Able to subtly adjust wheel spin w/out affecting counter-rotating wheel !

    Regardless the new Hustler Gatemaster or Gatestar w/ Pistols may be on my Shopping List for /05 depending on reviews !

    Demoed a Hustler short cut with the H-bar and didn't like it either.. But I almost wish I would have taght myself to like it, as the machine was super cool...Especially the Hog attachment.. That thing would have helped me take lots of Realtor 's money... on foreclosure jobs....
