    I am looking for a new mower. I have demo'd a few different makes and have decided on a Hustler. Now I am struggling with which model. I mow 1 1/2 acres that has about a 10-15% grade with 30 trees planted on it. I do not want to buy another lawn mower, ever. (Unless I decide to upgrade.) I am considering the 19hp Kawasaki/ 52" Mini Z, the 20hp/ 52" Fastrak (Honda), or the 18hp/ 52" Fastrak (Honda). Does the Kaw have more usable power than the 20 Honda? Would I have any power problems with any of these engines? Which mower should I choose? Thank you for any help.

    With the slope your talking about, I would be looking at the 19/52 Mini Z, with its larger tires and better hydros, it is going to be the better choice for you.
    Both have about the same usable power and you will not have any power problems with either engine.
