Howdy every one. I am new to this forum and am seeking help on choosing a new mower. My history is that I have worn out 2 residential Snapper riders, several craftsman w/b 21" and a 2130 AGS (not so good drive line) Cub Cadet over the years. I now use a a Honda Masters Series self propelled w/b 21". The honda appears far and away the best of the lot. Older now I live on 3/4 acre with one area that slopes down to the street. My hill is approximately 30 degrees and 80' X 60'. The balance of my lawn is flat In addition to my lot I also cut my sister-in-laws property which is about 1 acre and across town. I have "shopped" local dealers for most brands and think I am going to buy a hustler. Dealer support seems far superior to the other brands in this area. My choices are narrowed to the FasTrack 18 honda/44" or a mini Z 19 kaw/44. 44 due to gates into back yards. I am 6'4 1/2' and 265 so I feel like I am swallowing the FasTrack. Question - as I don't care to buy again for a long time do you think the drive line in the FasTrack will hold up to my size and my slope or should I bite the price difference and go with the mini Z. Quotes are 4599 vs 6299. A demo is scheduled for Monday. Thanks in advance.
