    I'm looking to purchase my first Hustler next week. I mow about 3 or 4 acres about half of that is on a 10% grade. I'm looking at a Fastrak 54/honda/20hp and a Mini Z 52/ Kaw/19. Can you help me decide which on will work better for me, last longer ect.

    2 acres of a slope at 10%......
    I would definitely go with the Mini Z, the separate pumps and wheel motors are better suited for that much slope mowing.

    I would also suggest the Honda Engine. It is worth the aditional $$.

    The Mini Z will ride better, but the FasTrak has the better consumer warranty.

    Consider how much money you are willing to spend, the warranty, how comfortable you want to be, and how long you plan on keeping this mower.

    I love the 19 Kaw 52" Mini Z.
