    I am going to get a mower and stopped at both a hustler dealer and exmark dealer this morning. I think a 36" will work good for me but maybe a 48".

    What would be the main differences other than the hustler solid hydraulic lines, electric start standard on hustler, bigger filled standard tires, and controls between the two? Are the pumps the same air cleaners same engine, drive motors,etc?

    Exmark turf tracer hp 36" 15hp kaw kai v twin
    Trimstar 36" 15hp kaw

    or maybe

    Exmark turf tracer hp 48" 17hp kaw kai v twin
    Trimstar 48" 17hp kaw

    I noticed there was big difference in weight between the 48" hustler and the 48" exmark(67lbs). Why is that? Not so much in between the 36" models though(19lbs).
    The tires would have something to do with that because they are the same on both hustlers but the exmars use different between the two models. But what else makes the weight difference?

    There is a pretty big difference in price as well with the husky costing several hundred less than an exmark.
