Hey crew! I'm looking for a Hustler but as many, have little cash to spend. I currently cut with a Scotts/JD 42" rider. It takes me about 2 hours to cut my lawn. Call it 2 acres or so mostly flat. I borrowed my neighbor's Hustler Z with a 52" deck - at least i think it was a 52" ---- anyway -- I was able to cut the entire yard in 20 minutes or less. What was it that helped this to be done so quickly? Was it the deck size or the zero turn capability? I have a few trees but the way the areas I cut are shaped I end up doing a lot of the backing up and forward mess so I'll contribute that to be the biggest time saver. I guess my real question is do you think that I could run a mini z 36" and still be faster than I was on the Scotts/JD 42" or should I get another 42" cut or even bigger? I would like to spend as little as possible and the smaller mower appeals to me in both size and price. If I do get one I WANT to spend less time cutting but not too much less. I'll likely be bagging too if possible at some future point.
