I bought a Hustler Super Z 31 HP 60 inch deck in 2010. I have never been really happy with the cut on the xr7 deck. It bogs down in thick grass and the deck cannot handle what I am trying to cut, and the list goes on. I was a scag guy until my dealer stopped selling them so i did not have much of a choice. I know that hustler has come out with improvements with the vx4 deck, and heard that it has been compared to the scag velocity deck. I have to do something different I cannot keep cutting with this mower and deck. People in my area love the hustlers and they work fine for some people but not for me. Should I purchase the new hustler with the vx4 or go another route? The next scag dealer is over 30 minutes away and really do no want to change dealers they are excellent. The dealer also sells bobcat but I'm not too impressed with those machines.
