    1979, Excel Hustler 272, Any pro's and cons on this machine. Person has it for sale, He don't know how many hours it has on it, says in good shape, good hydralics, etc. He bought it from the school system and used it on his personel and his own business property. oh ya its got a 20 hp kohler, he said it cuts real good considering only 20 hp. Thanks tell me everything you know about the machine.

    The 272 was the very first dual-hydrostatic drive system ever created (1970). There are still many of them in service today. (As a side note, a nearby school still runs our old belt-drive 172 from the 1960s). Now you see where Hustler got its reputation for durability.

    Thanks Artman, does anyone know what a machine like this would be worth, saying the condition is (runs good) ?
