You better check the cut on the Hustler,I mow Bahai in FL and that was what it was designed for and it works great for that but alot of people have complained about the cut. I can tell you the rest of the machine is by far the best rider I have owned. They are limited in HP at the moment but the machine is so smooth, tough and easy to work on that I would not consider anything else at the moment. My dealer sell Dixie and I just look at the way they are designed compared to the Hustler and laugh, and the mechanics laughed with me but for them it is no joking matter they have to deal with the contaquerousness of the machine. Don't get me wrong it is a good machine but once you see how easy a Hustler is to work on and maintain you really will think 2 or 3 times about another brand!
