I run a 152Z w/ mulch kit as my work horse - maybe 3 years old now. 3-8 yards a day. Ive also driven hustlers Z and super Zs... so minimal knowledge to compare my 152Z. relatively speaking: I love the deck, metal work, ergonomics and Catoes in Columbia SC. I wish y'all made trailers. gripes: its too easy to leave tire marks in tight corners. Hustler Z kicks your butt. the gas tank grommets and fuel line retention springs are problematic.. again. the seat is falling apart...but no biggie for me. the blade engage switch is acting up.. again.
