I am in the process of looking for a mower just for my own use mowing about 3.5 acres (with lots of trees). I have it down to either dixie chopper or hustler. Both dealers will give me great service. I'm looking at these because I want something that is fast, cuts good, and will last. I was leaning toward the dixie chopper silver eagle 25/50 or 27/60 over the 19/54 fastrak, mostly because I like the seperate driver pumps and speed of the dixie and I was worried about the 19 horse not being enough. But with the spring deals going on with hustler I am looking at the mini Z 19/52 kaw and the hustler Z 25/60 kaw. So is the 19 horse of the hustler enough power? I have demoed the dixie 25/50 and the mini z, but haven't tried the hustler z yet. Any input is appreciated.
